“I am so beyond excited!” Panelley said. “I can’t even express my feelings into words. The truck is beautiful and I can’t wait to officially call it mine. Thank you so much Yokohama.” 

“Congratulations to Becca,” said Andrew Briggs, Yokohama's vice president of marketing. She beat out hundreds of thousands of other entries to win this gorgeous truck, which is a blast to drive.”

The truck was customized with AEV and includes a three-inch dual-sport SC lifted suspension, an Andersen Hitch, a premium front off-road bumper, 17x8.5 Salta HD wheels and differential covers for the front and rear. The custom livery wrap was designed by Jon Sibal and it rides on 37x12.50 R17 Geolandar M/T G003 tires.

The truck made its debut at the Nitro Circus show in San Diego and was on display at all 20 Nitro Circus Live events across the country. A free set of Geolandar M/T G003 tires was given away at each Nitro Circus Live event.

Yokohama is the exclusive tire of the Nitro Circus Live Tour in the United States, as well as an official sponsor of the Nitro World Games.
