March 29, 2022

Nexen Tire America Inc. has kicked off its 2022 United States motorsports program and its support of four Nexen Tire Motorsports drivers in Formula Drift.

The 2022 Formula Drift season starts April 1-2 in Long Beach, Calif.

Nexen drivers "will begin the season equipped with the company's current line of proven drift tires," the N'Fera SUR4G Extreme ultra-high performance, according to Nexen officials.

"Teams will then begin running Nexen Tire's next generation of extreme ultra-high performance tires, the N'Fera Sport R," which debuted at last year's Specialty Equipment Market Association Show.

“We are extremely excited to be back in Formula Drift after having limited involvement during the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Paul Jho, specialty tire and motorsports director at Nexen Tire America.

“This year, we've refined our motorsports program by partnering with some of the most well-known drivers in Formula Drift and will supply them with the highly anticipated N'Fera Sport R, the exclusive tire choice for Nexen Tire Motorsports drivers. We are confident our drivers will test the capabilities of N'Fera Sport R and we look forward to seeing the success this year.”
