BFGoodrich Looks for Next Winners of Outstanding Trails Grants
Michelin North America Inc.'s BFGoodrich brand builds tires for any adventure, including those that take drivers off their daily roadways. Its Outstanding Trails program promotes sustainable and responsible off-road driving, and BFGoodrich will once again award grants of $4,000 each to four qualified and passionate off-road clubs in North America.
These clubs will use the grants to continue local efforts that preserve and protect their hometown trails.
In its 11th year, BFGoodrich's Outstanding Trails program is developed in association with 4 Wheel Parts as presenting sponsor of this year’s program. 4 Wheel Parts will promote the program and provide outreach to four-wheel-drive clubs across North America. The program also is conducted in collaboration with United Four Wheel Drive Associations (UFWDA), Blue Ribbon Coalition and the Off Road Business Association.
To date, Outstanding Trails has awarded grants to 40 off-road trails nominated by 38 local clubs throughout North America. The program has provided more than $150,000 in grants in support of these trail conservation efforts.
Nominations will be accepted beginning March 28 through July 15, 2016, on the BFGoodrich Tires website at www.bfgoodrichtires.com/outstandingtrails. The competition invites off-road clubs from around North America to nominate local trails that merit grants for maintenance or refurbishing. Trails are selected based on uniqueness, terrain type, and enthusiast support.
BFGoodrich has assembled a panel of judges comprising four-wheel industry veterans to evaluate Outstanding Trails grant submissions. This group selects three winning trails, which will be announced at Off Road Expo in October.
