May 3, 2021

Nexen Tire America Inc. has kicked off its 2021 U.S. motorsports program, which includes Formula Drift, King of the Hammers, the Ultra4 Racing series, Championship Off-Road Racing and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

"Each year, Nexen Tire Motorsports continues to build its competitive racing program by supplying N'Fera SUR4G Extreme Ultra High-Performance tires and Roadian MTX Xtreme Off-Road tires to high-caliber, championship-winning and podium-finishing drivers," say Nexen officials. 

Nexen will supply its N’Fera SUR4G Extreme ultra-high performance tires for 2021 Formula Draft racers. "This year, Nexen Tire Motorsports has identified a combination of new and returning drivers."

The company "also expanded its off-road racing program for 2021, which includes supplying two teams with Roadian MTX Xtreme Off-Road tires for Championship Off-Road Racing events, Ultra4 Racing series and the legendary King of the Hammers."

And Nexen has signed a two-year agreement with Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, "which includes supplying one team with N’Fera SS01 full-slick tires for a LoveFab Enviate Hypercar. Sponsorship also includes Nexen Tire as the trophy sponsor of the event's Time Attack #1 Division."

"We are extremely excited to return to motorsports this year after having limited involvement during the COVID-19 pandemic last year," says Paul Jho, motorsports senior manager at Nexen. 

"During that downtime, we worked hard to identify the right set of drivers to best represent the Nexen Tire brand and we’re thrilled to continue growing our racing program in Formula DRIFT, two different types of off-road racing and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

"In addition, we are also supporting Allies of Autism to increase the awareness of families dealing with autism. We are confident our drivers will have successful seasons filled with wins and podium finishes.”
