MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – As the 2015 AMSOIL Grand National Cross Country Series presented by Maxxis, an AMA National Championship, heads into round three this weekend, a new championship dynamic presents itself in the XC1 Pro ATV class.

“The Mint 400 is a big race,” said PJ Guglielmo, “We wanted our truck to be loud; maybe a little obnoxious.” Guglielmo was referring to the gold foil vehicle wrap that made his Trophylite look as if it was made of polished gold.

Even the drawn out name has been snatched up by Polaris and General Tire who, like everyone else, wants to be a part of the largest off-road racing happening of the season.

GREENVILLE, SC (Feb 13, 2015) – Not laying off the throttle after a record year of desert racing, BFGoodrich® Tires helped drivers win the first three races of the season in their respective series. Wins at the King of the Hammers (Randy Slawson), Best In The Desert Parker 425 (Gary Weyhrich) and Bud Light SCORE San Felipe 250 (Tavo Vildosola) continued the string of dominating performance on BFGoodrich racing tires. Drivers on BFGoodrich Tires have now won the overall title in 13 of the last 14 major North American desert races.
Randy Slawson knows it’s good to be King. Randy and Brother Mike, his co-driver, took their second King of the Hammers title in the last three years. The Nitto King of the Hammers race Presented by 4Wheel Parts is touted as the toughest single-day off-road race in the world and after this year’s event, nobody would argue that point. It took Slawson almost nine hours to complete the 215 mile course that includes wide open desert sections with the toughest rock crawling trails in Johnson Valley, California.
Maybe it’s the genes. Maybe it’s the car.
