Yokohama Tire-Sponsored Drivers to Compete in Off-Road Races

Travis Pastrana, Tanner Foust, Andrew Carlson and other Yakohama-sponsored drivers will compete in the Championship Off-Road series on Yokohama tires from Sept. 4-5.

For the final short-course race of the season, Yokohama Tire-sponsored drivers Travis Pastrana, Tanner Foust and Andrew Carlson will compete in the Championship Off-Road series event at Crandon International Raceway in Wisconsin, Sept. 4-5. Yokohama is the official tire partner of Crandon – the largest short-course off-road facility in the world, the company says.

Pastrana, Foust and Carlson, as well as Mia Chapman, Zach Szymik and John Holtger, are all Team Yokohama members and will be campaigning in different divisions on several different types of Yokohama’s rugged Geolandar off-road tires.

In a partnership with Red Bull Motorsports, both Pastrana and Carlson will be on off-the-shelf Geolandar-A/T tires in Pro-4. Crandon will be Pastrana’s Pro-4 debut, while Carlson is currently third in season points. Carlson will also be going for back-to-back Crandon world championship titles in the Pro Mod SxS division on Geolandar A/T G015 tires.
