     Villopoto has already demonstrated his dominance on the track, having
     earned three AMA Motocross (MX) Lites titles and the 2007 Supercross (SX)
     Lites West championship.  He suffered a season-ending injury in April 2010
     during Round 14 in St. Louis, and has spent the balance of the year
     recuperating from his accident.  He will return to action in 2011, again
     riding for the Monster Energy Kawasaki team.

     "We are delighted to welcome Ryan to the Falken Tire family," stated Nick
     Fousekis, Falken Director of Motorsports.  "Anyone who is a fan of
     Supercross is well aware of RV's accomplishments and knows he is a tough
     competitor at every event.  We know RV will be more determined than ever
     in 2011, competing in the AMA Monster Energy Supercross series, and Falken
     is proud to be associated with him, as we are with the series as the
     Official Truck Tire of AMA Monster Energy Supercross."  Ryan also will be
     featured in Falken's new television commercial which airs during each
     event televised by CBS.

     "I am really excited to be a part of the Falken Tire team and their entry
     as The Official Truck Tire of AMA Supercross," added Villopoto.  "It is so
     cool when new companies step up to our sport and I can't explain how good
     it feels to be the face!"
