Travis Pastrana, Andrew Carlson, and Levi Shirley have a few things in common. One, they’re all badasses. Two, they’re all sponsored by Yokohama Tires. And three, they’re all headed to Crandon, Wisconsin this weekend to compete in the World Championship Off-Road Race!
Taking place at the Crandon International Raceway, the race promises to be one to remember, especially with this trio of skilled drivers joining the fray. Each of them will compete in distinct classes and give the spectators a real show. Pastrana is competing in Pro-2 using Yokohama’s Geolandar A/T G015s; Carlson will take on Pro-4 in Geolandar X-ATs and Pro Mod SxS in G015s; and Shirley will put the pedal to the metal in the Ultra4 4400 unlimited class on Geolandar MT-R tires.
“I’ve always wanted to go to Crandon,” Pastrana said. “Not only is it an amazing race on an awesome track, but the excitement generated by this event is second to none in the off-road world. A lot of things have been shut down this year and I am happy for such an amazing race weekend to look forward to.”
“I’m really looking forward to Crandon,” said Carlson. “The battles are sure to be intense given how the season has progressed so far. Yokohama has been a huge part of our success. The X-AT tires we’re running have helped take us to another level. We’re going to fight tooth and nail to win the last rounds!”
This race will definitely be one to watch. If you can’t make it to Crandon by tomorrow, don’t worry. The race will be streamed live on the Championship Off-Road website. Also, go check out Yokohama’s website and Facebook page to find out more about their off-road tires.
