Not long ago, Toyo Tires brought a new off-road tire to the market in the all-new Open Country R/T. We’ve had a chance to put the tire to the test ourselves and came away impressed (check out the review link below). As Toyo notes, the tire is designed for off-road performance blended with on-road comfort. The R/T is essentially made to be more in line with a mud-terrain in terms of off-road performance but more like an all-terrain in terms of being quieter and smoother on the highway than a mud tire.
To provide race fans with more access to off-road racing and to promote the Mint 400 race, Mad Media and The Martelli Brothers have loaded the entire 2010 General Tire Mint 400 on YouTube.

Earlier in the year, Nissan announced its plan to build a custom Titan pickup truck. What’s unique about Nissan Project Titan is that the Japanese automaker decided to let fans vote on the modifications to determine what the final version of the truck will be.
It’s been a few years since the WORCS series visited the lush green scenery and tight, wooded trails of the American Northwest, but many saw it as a welcome change from the last couple rounds of wide-open (quite literally as far as the throttle was concerned) desert. Personally I have always enjoyed the races north of the Oregon border- the terrain is enjoyable and the green surroundings are surely a welcome change from the browns and yellows of Southern California- though I’ve never enjoyed particularly good results in the trees. It’s not for a lack of trying, it’s more down to my relationship with trees in general: I’m doing my best to ride smoothly in between them but their roots, branches and trunks just always seem move themselves right in my way. Joking aside, I’ve never quite been able to find the speed necessary to run with the fastest riders in the tighter terrain, but as we headed north I felt my skill on the bike in general had improved since the last time I raced in the forest and there was the added impetus of a championship battle with Gary Sutherlin; I needed to beat him.

PRAIRIE CITY SVRA, CA: Thousands of fans weathered the triple digit heat last weekend at the MetalCloak Stampede to watch one of the most exciting ULTRA4 races to date. The main event saw two former and the current King of The Hammers each take a turn at leading throughout the 45 minute race. That is until the final lap, when Tom Wayes worked his way from a rear start to claim the checkered flag, and his first ULTRA4 win.
Wayes had the fastest qualifying lap on Friday morning, however after suffering mechanical issues, he was unable to race in Friday afternoon’s prelim races. The top 3 drivers from prelims moved directly to the main event on Saturday afternoon. Nitto Tire driver Loren Healy won the fastest prelim heat which put him on the pole for the main event with Shannon Campbell starting beside him.
