Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels returns to the Top Truck Challenge

Posted on June 12, 2014

 The action begins today at the 22nd annual Top Truck Challenge (TTC) presented by Four Wheeler Magazine. The courses are ready and the competitors gather for the monster of all off-road obstacle course competitions held each year in June in Hollister, Calif. Mickey Thompson returns as the official tire sponsor with several Team M/T competitors in the field.
 
More than 90 hours of hard labor were required to prepare the seven-event course that includes the legendary Tow Test, Frame Twister, Mud Pit, Obstacle Course, Hill Climb, the Tank Trap and the Coal Chute. About 70 people make this event possible including the judges, the Recovery Crew, the Safety Crew, the video production crew, the TTC support staff and the Four Wheeler staff. Each TTC team is comprised of a driver and a co-driver, and 10 teams make up the field.
 
“Every year this one-of-a-kind event becomes bigger, better and more exciting,” said Ken Warner, VP of Marketing. “The challenges of each course in the event have helped us design the incredible Baja Claw TTC tire for these tough competitors, and we’re looking forward to another great year here in Hollister.”
