Douglas-Crandon-off-road-9-3-13El Cajon, CA (September 3, 2013) – The Crandon Off-Road World Championships is the one weekend the entire short-course off-road racing marks on their calendar and race teams like Douglas Motorsports bring every additional part possible as the three race weekend carries more weight than any other event during the entire season. Scott Douglas and his #7 AMSOIL Borla Exhaust BFGoodrich Tire PRO-4×4 ran well throughout the weekend that was highlighted with a second place finish in Sunday’s Round 14 race.

The weekend began with the traditional Friday race truck display and parade. The event saw Scott Douglas meet and greet hundreds of off-road racing fans during the morning festivities. Then later in the day practice sessions kicked off all the on track activities. At the completion of the timed sessions, Douglas Motorsports was third quickest in the PRO-4×4 field.

Nitto Tire-sponsored driver Nick Nelson navigated his 4×4 to the top of the heap to win from behind at last week’s 4 Wheel Parts Ultra 4 Glen Helen Grand Prix.  Nelson was five minutes ahead of second place, completing 23 total laps in the 2.5 hour brutal endurance race.

The 4 Wheel Parts Ultra 4 Glen Helen Grand Prix is an annual short course motorcross event that pits drivers and teams against a variety of terrains and obstacles including hill climbs, off-road service roads and tracks with plenty of high speed runs.  The track is a 3.5 mile loop and this year’s competition included 34 total drivers. Nelson started the race in fifth place but immediately after the start, a fellow driver made contact to Nelson’s truck causing an unscheduled pit stop that had Nelson in last place after the first lap.  Nelson had to battle his way through all competitors – through dirt tracks and hill climbs – to reach first, hold on and ultimately win the race.  Nelson used Nitto 37×12.50R17 DOT TRAIL GRAPPLER tires for the race.

“We’ve been trying to make this happen for over a year now,” says Nelson. “My crew did an amazing job today, getting the car put together real fast after the early set-back. The Nitto tires worked awesome today, I beat them to death and they performed well the whole time. I’m proud to bring home the 1st place victory for my crew and all my sponsors.”

Shingle Springs, CA – After a first place overall podium finish and winning the UTV1000 class at Round 1 of the Valley Off-Road Racing Association (VORRA) series, Jon Crowley seeks to DOMINATE Round 2 in his Monster Energy Kawasaki Teryx 4×4 UTV.

The 2011 season is shaping to be a great season, as Jon holds the early points lead going into this weekend’s second short course race of the year at Prairie City OHV Park.  The 7-round series consists of 4 short course races and 3 desert races including the only 24-Hour Endurance race for UTV’s.

When asked about the 2011 VORRA season he commented, “This season will be tough and rugged. With a combination of short course and desert races, my Monster Energy Kawasaki Teryx will be on its game, and the rest falls into my hands at the wheel.”

Jon Crowley is proving that his Monster Energy Kawasaki Teryx is possibly the most versatile UTV in the circuit. His 999cc equipped MONSTER features a +4″ Funco Suspension set-up accompanied by Fox Racing Shox 2.0 DSC’s, which allows him to run and WIN in the same vehicle throughout the year.

Jon explained, “Where others have dedicated vehicles for short course or desert, we’ve found the right combination to be BETTER and FASTER in the same vehicle all year long. The Funco suspension is truly an all-around system that only requires some fine adjustments on the Fox Racing Shox. Muzzy’s Performance power is pushing me to the front, and no matter how much power I throw at them, the Pit Bull Tires keep on grabbing!”

This weekend’s race at Prairie City OHV Park, just outside of Sacramento, will be challenging, but the Crowley Off-Road Racing team knows that the Monster Energy Kawasaki Teryx will be tough to beat. Follow and stay tuned to www.CrowleyOffRoad.com for the latest results, photos, and videos.

According to ATV tire manufacturer ITP, something wicked this way comes, and it’s called Mayhem. The Mayhem is the new bad boy in ITP’s proven ATV/UTV tire line, spelling trouble for the competition. This is ITP’s most aggressive mud/trail tire ever, with striking looks and hard-hitting performance.

The Mayhem features a unique, deep-lug tread design that mocks the nastiest mudholes but still plays nice on harder trail surfaces. Trail comfort and handling are further enhanced by the Mayhem’s lightweight carcass construction. Exceptional acceleration and braking characteristics as well as balanced cornering qualities make the Mayhem a capable, confident all-around performer. With its extended wear rubber compound and durable 6-ply rating, the Mayhem can take a beating and come back for more. And with its distinctive, tribal-inspired, embossed artwork, the Mayhem stands out in a crowd not just for its abilities but for its attitude, too.
