Radar-Tires-Mike-Johnson-8-16-13Bronson Motorsports owner/driver Mike Johnson reflects on his inaugural season with sponsor Radar Tires in both the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) and SCORE International (SCORE).  Johnson recaps his season and sets goals for the remainder of the year.

Johnson competes in LOORRS behind the wheel of the No. 31 Bronson Motorsports Toyota Tacoma sponsored by Radar Tires. Johnson also serves as co-driver of the No.1031 Radar Tires Racing Buggy in SCORE.

So far this season, Bronson Motorsports, Radar Tires and Johnson have won two off road events.  In January, Johnson and co-driver Mike Majesky were the overall winners at the Mojave Off-Road Racing Enthusiasts (M.O.R.E.) New Years 200 race in Barstow, California, and the Class 10 winners of the 45th Annual SCORE International Baja 500 in Ensenada, Mexico.   Johnson, Radar Tires and Bronson Motorsports lead the SCORE International Class 10 points race, following the San Felipe 250 podium finish and Baja 500 win.  The team will compete in the 46th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 in November.  In LOORRS, Johnson’s best finish was ninth place at Las Vegas Motors Speedway.

Radar-Tires-Baja-500-6-3-13Singapore, June 3, 2013 –Radar Tires Racing and Bronson Motorsports driver/owner Mike Johnson conquered the 500 treacherous miles of Mexico’s Baja California Norte terrain on Saturday to earn a Class 10 victory during the 45th Annual SCORE International Baja 500 this weekend.

This class win marks the first victory for Radar Tires in SCORE International off-road competition.  Johnson and the Radar Tires Racing Buggy finished 43 minutes ahead of the closest Class 10 competitor.

Mike ‘Ironman’ Johnson was the lone driver of the No.1031 Radar Tires Racing Buggy this weekend.  The racing machine is an Alumicraft chassis, Class 10 buggy with special non-DOT size 33X10.50R15 Radar Renegade R5 race tires.

“Thanks to Bronson Motorsports crew for their efforts leading up to and during this race,” Johnson said.  “The Radar Tires were great.  I didn’t have one flat the entire time.  We only changed the rear tires once, pitted twice and here we are winning the Baja 500.  It was a great effort by the entire team.  It was tough; it was brutal, but a lot of fun.  The course was challenging at the beginning because you had a lot of dust to deal with, then the summit, then sand.  Once you were on the Pacific side, there was silt, sand, rocks, and you name it, and it was there.”
