Which ITP tire/wheel size and models do you run? 
I have been running the ITP Ultracross R-Spec since they were debuted. I have evolved along with ITP as I started with the 30x10R14 and now currently use the 31x9.5R14 or the 32x10R15 depending on the race conditions.     

How long have you been an ITP rider?
I have had the support of ITP for over 3 years and throughout those years I have managed to become one of their top desert racing teams.  

Why ITP?
ITP has been the go to tire in the ATV world for decades, when deciding which tire I wanted to utilize in my Pro UTV  desert race program it seemed to be a no brainer with ITP’s championship winning background. I have continued to use ITP’s tires due to the fact that the Ultracross R-Spec has led me across the finish line in 1st place multiple times in the most grueling desert races without failure. ITP's Ultracross R-Spec is not only the most resilient to punctures tire that I have ran, but it also has the best traction and handling characteristics to go along. It is a tire that has the complete package that you would be looking for when shopping for a tire.  

Best ITP Story: 
After starting the 2016 Baja 1000 and finishing in 1st place on the same set of tires that I started with has to be one of my most accomplished moments running on my ITP Ultracross R-Spec tires.
