American Kenda Rubber Co. Ltd. will continue to support off-road short course racing and the Amsoil Championship Off-Road (COR) Series.

Kenda will have a presence at all COR races in 2021, "with visibility both on- and off-track, utilizing sponsor displays and branded track sections," according to company officials.

"Livestream and CBS Sports Network viewers can enjoy rotating commercials about Kenda at every round."

Michael Higgs, Kenda's off-road racing manager, says the tiremaker "embraces short course off-road racing as it allows us to race DOT tires - the same tires sold to consumers in retail stores."

The COR series "demonstrates the extreme performance and durability in conditions that the average truck owner will appreciate."

Driver Kyle Kleiman will defend his 2020 Pro2 Championship while running on Kenda's Klever light truck tires.

"Our popular R/T tread pattern brought home the series championship last year," says Higgs.

"Kyle also introduced our newest LT pattern, the Klever A/T2, in grand fashion by being first across the line" in the annual Cup Race.

Kenda's COR series team will consist of six drivers this season - all racing on the company's Klever family of tires, which includes the Klever R/T, the Klever M/T and the Klever AT2.
