Yokohama is Official Tire Supplier of 2021 Nitro Rallycross
Yokohama Tire Corp. has once again been named as the official tire supplier for 2021 Nitro Rallycross (Nitro RX).
"Returning after a one-year hiatus, the five-race, adrenaline-fueled series that features all-wheel-drive, 600-plus horsepower vehicles, standing starts and 100-foot-plus jumps, will feature the Advan A054 tire from Yokohama," say Yokohama officials.
"The action begins September 24 at Utah Motorsports Campus near Salt Lake City."
Yokohama-sponsored driver Travis Pastrana will participate in this year's event.
“We’re ready to race,” says Fardad Niknam, Yokohama’s senior director of consumer product planning and product marketing.
“The Advan A054 was specifically engineered for the high demands of rallycross. It features an FIA-approved groove pattern and incorporates an ultra-stiff construction with a high-traction compound – perfect for the variable surfaces and giant jumps.”
