Singapore, 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.”
