Several high-profile competitors will use Falken brand tires during the upcoming off-road race season.

Sumitomo Rubber North America's Falken brand is preparing for an exciting 2021 off-road racing season with what it calls "an aggressive complement of teams."

"We've got a great mix of Falken and off-road veterans, as well as several new drivers who will join our team this year, starting with Josh Atteberry, who will compete in both the 4600 Class and Class 11," says Doug Fletcher, Falken's supervisor of light truck and off-road events.

Atteberry, who claimed third place in a 2020 King of the Hammers event, also finished first in an Ultra4 Moab event, plus the Ultra4 National race in Oklahoma.

"We'll also have additional drivers competing in the 4600 class, including returning Falken drivers Brian McNamara, who finished fourth in the Every Man Challenge last year, as well as Jon Schaefer, who set the pole position at the Every Man Challenge at King of the Hammers." Their vehicles will run on Falken WildPeak M/T tires.
