Falken Tires Earns Podium In Every Man Challenge
Falken Tires earned a second place podium in the Modified Class for 17-year-old Jordan Pellegrino, who finished 4th overall in the annual Every Man Challenge, part of the King of the Hammers week-long of off-road events.
Pellegrino started 17th out of 103 cars entered and finished the tough event in 5 hours, 3 minutes and 12 seconds.
Kevin Rants took 4th place in the Modified Class and 13th overall in the Every Man Challenge, having started 37th. Both drivers ran on Falken’s WILDPEAK M/T tire, as did veteran Justin Hall, who finished 24th overall and 9th in class.
As in previous years, the Every Man Challenge was designed at a length of approximately 150 miles, with many drivers stating the course was probably the hardest to navigate to date. Only 37 drivers finished of the 103 cars entered.
“Jordan came through for us and his commitment – as were Kevin and Justin’s – was so strong throughout the race,” stated Jonathon Bradford, Falken Motorsports Marketing and Events Manager. “Our Falken WILDPEAKs proved capable, too, and we know we’ve got a competitive tire for our off-road competitors this season.”
