DEARBORN, Mich. – April 12, 2011 – At the age of 17, Brian Deegan left his home in Omaha and headed for Southern California with only the F-150 he drove, a credit card and his dirt bike, dreaming of becoming the next big thing in Motocross. That 1989 Ford truck carried him and his dreams halfway across the country and to an entirely new life – the one he pictured growing up in the heartland.  In the 17 years since Deegan has become a recognized innovator of FMX, one of the most decorated X Games athletes and an icon in action sports.  He’s not done yet. Deegan is now looking to take that same competitive fire to four-wheel motorsports and again looks to Ford to help him get there.

Deegan’s partnership with Ford Racing announced today will allow him to race Fords in multiple action motorsports platforms, including the Ford Raptor in the Lucas Oil Off Road Series, Global RallyCross Championship and at X Games 17 in Los Angeles.

“I’m a Ford guy – always have been – and I’m really excited about working together. In order to be successful as a racer I need to be with the best,” Deegan said. “When you think of racing, especially off-road truck, Ford has dominated, and there is nothing I’d rather be behind the wheel of.”

ASPEN, Colo. – Professional Athlete Shaun White has accomplished much in his storied career in action sports – he’s a two-time Olympic Gold medal winner, the most decorated athlete in Winter X Games history with 15 medals, a four-time medal winner at Summer X Games and a nine-time ESPY award winner. Now Shaun White will work to upgrade his driving abilities with the help of his newest partner, BFGoodrich Tires. The multi-year “Upgrade to BFGoodrich” campaign featuring Shaun White kicks off at ESPN Winter X Games 15 in Aspen, Colo.

“I’m looking forward to a great partnership with BFGoodrich Tires,” said Shaun White. “I’ve always been fascinated with cars and I’m excited to work with the BFGoodrich team on my performance driving.”
