BFGoodrich Tires prepared for Red Bull Frozen Rush
Coming on the heels of one of the most successful race seasons in years, BFGoodrich Tires continues to dominate the landscape of off-road racing as it prepares to conquer another terrain – snow – at Red Bull Frozen Rush.
As the tire technology partner for this event, BFGoodrich will provide technical expertise and be the sole tire solution, with the BFGoodrich Tires All-Terrain T/A FR2 fitted on every Pro 4 Off-Road race truck that will tackle the slopes at Sunday River Resort in Newry, Maine on January 9.
Red Bull Frozen Rush is part of the 2015 Red Bull Signature Series, a progressive collection of action sports events. This year, 9 champion off-road racers, including BFGoodrich Performance Team members Bryce Menzies, R.J. Anderson and Rob MacCachren, along with defending champion Ricky Johnson will charge their 900-horsepower trucks up and down the one-and-a-half mile course built on the ski slopes of Sunday River Resort. Other champion drivers participating include Brian Deegan, Scott Douglas, Chad Hord, Todd LeDuc and Carl Renezeder.
BFGoodrich Tires will outfit all the participating Pro 4 trucks by creating custom tires engineered from the company’s championship motorsports racing technology for an enhanced off-road experience on the frozen obstacle course. The BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A FR2 tire has at its core the company’s champion short course race tire and then affixed with custom grooving and more than 700 specially designed spikes to grip and throw the snow and ice, providing the racers with ultimate traction and toughness. These tires will enable the Pro 4 trucks to speed through trees, soar over 50 ft wide gaps, hit multiple jumps, weave through flags and blast around eight-foot tall berms, all while reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour.
The Red Bull Frozen Rush will be available for the world to watch in real time through Red Bull TV and as part of the Red Bull Signature Series on NBC on Sunday, March 1.
