Radar Tires to make Bark River debut

Posted on June 11, 2014

Last weekend, Radar Tires dominated the 46th Annual Tecate SCORE International Baja 500 with its second Class 10 win of the 2014 season and second consecutive win at the Baja 500. Now the Singapore-based tire brand seeks its first short course win of the season in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. This weekend’s Throwdown in the U.P. Part 1 are the fifth and sixth rounds of the TORC: The Off Road Championship.
 
Bark River is a home-state track for Omni United, the parent company of Radar Tires. Bark River is located in the southern region of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, while the U.S., headquarters of the tire brand is located in the northwest part of Michigan’s “Mitten” approximately 300 miles apart.
 
Radar Tires continues to use the LT265/75R16 and 32X11.50R15 Radar Renegade R5 tires for this two-day event. The tires will be used by Project648 Motorsports’ Luke Johnson and Cam Reimers Motorsports co-drivers Cam Reimers and Ian Harris, all in the PRO Light class.
 
One of the longest circuits on the TORC series schedule, Bark River is 1.5 miles in length and varies in terrain from dry and slick to soft and moist loamy. The circuit features mid-sized moguls, table-top jumps and a fast, sweeping left-handed turn known as Cemetery Turn. Despite Bark River being one of the longest tracks, all three Radar Tires racers know that it will be non-stop, wheel-to-wheel aggression during the weekend’s two 15-minute races.
