How long have you been an ITP rider?
I have been fortunate enough to be racing for ITP since 2015.
As a race team owner and off-road racer, I always evaluate what are our best odds to be successful and tires are one of the most critical parts of off-road racing success. Considering the race involvement ITP has had for many years and the success we had with ITP tires as independent racers, ITP was our first and only choice for tires when we started racing Best in the Desert.
Best ITP Story
2015 Vegas to Reno we started 37th in Pro UTV and after 100 miles of hard racing in the brutal 115-degree heat we took over the 1st physical position and 1st position on corrected time. We battled racers and a brutal course to fight our way up into the trophy truck class and at one point were running 22nd overall. After following a trophy truck for several miles we tried to make a pass and hit a rock extremely hard with our rear right corner. Unfortunately, we damaged our wheel resulting in a flat tire. We drove the next 30 miles of the vegas to reno on a flat rear right. The tire held up so well that we had no idea we had been running on a flat until we stopped for fuel! After 30 hard race miles, the tires were still fully in tacked and carried us to the pit where we were able to change it. That tire was later used as a spare for the following race. A true testament to the toughness and durability of ITP tires and this made a true believer out of myself and my team.
