The Outstanding Trails program initiated by BFGoodrich and presenting sponsor 4Wheel Parts has already awarded grants to 36 off-road trails nominated by 35 local clubs throughout North America. Outstanding Trails has provided more than $140,000 in grants in support of trail conservation.
Through the program that promotes sustainable and responsible off-road driving, BFGoodrich Tires will once again award grants of $4,000 each to three qualified and passionate off-road clubs in North America. These clubs will use their grants to continue efforts preserving and protecting their hometown trails. The three winners will be announced at the October 2015 Off Road Expo.
Nominations will be accepted beginning April 3 through July 10, 2015, on the BFGoodrich Tires website. The competition invites off-road clubs from around North America to nominate local trails that merit grants for maintenance or refurbishing. Trails are selected based on uniqueness, terrain type, and enthusiast support.
“Off-road communities and clubs that promote and preserve this activity are true driving enthusiasts,” said Duane Thomas, brand communications manager for BFGoodrich Tires. “Outstanding Trails allows BFGoodrich Tires and our sponsors to join these clubs in maintaining a robust and responsible off-road culture.”
4 Wheel Parts will help promote the program and provide outreach to four-wheel-drive clubs across North America. The program also is conducted in collaboration with United Four Wheel Drive Associations (UFWDA), Blue Ribbon Coalition, and the Off Road Business Association.
