On April 21, 2011, BFGoodrich Tires invited members of the off-road community to cast their votes for one of four BFGoodrich Tires’ pre-selected Outstanding Trails and clubs. Since the launch of the 2011 Outstanding Trails vote, BFGoodrich Tires encountered an issue with the voting site when “voting bots,” programs designed to cast multiple votes in milliseconds, infiltrated the site and caused an unfair voting situation.
In an effort to make the vote fair and beneficial for all four clubs, BFGoodrich Tires will eliminate all votes submitted on the voting site prior to April 26, 2011. The site will continue to offer consumers the option of voting once a day per IP address. BFGoodrich Tires has also made a contribution of $500 to each club for use at their trail.
To ensure that the clubs get as many votes as possible, BFGoodrich will extend the voting period an additional two weeks. The new voting deadline will be 11:59 p.m. (EDT) on Thursday, June 30, 2011. The Outstanding Trail that garners the most votes will be announced on Wednesday, July 6, 2011, at www.BFGoodrichTires.com.
