Corona, California (March 6, 2018) – Falken Tire is expanding its involvement in off-road racing by sponsoring two Pro Lite drivers in the 2018 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) season.
“Falken has a long standing history in Motorsports and we are excited to compete in the LOORRS ultra-competitive ‘short course’ off road racing series,” said Falken Tires Motorsports Manager, Jonathon Bradford. “In 2018 we will be campaigning two teams in the Pro Lite class.”
Jonathan Brenthel and Cole Mamer will race on Falken’s WILDPEAK M/T tires and display the company’s blue-and-teal colors.
It will be a rookie season for Brenthel, a 38-year-old resident of Anaheim, California as he will only run a partial LOORRS campaign in 2018. He will also be competing in long-distance desert racing in which he is a multiple winner.
Mamer, an 18-year-old who lives in Holtville, California, is a three-year veteran of Pro Lite competition and has twice finished in the top 10 in the point standings.
Both Brenthel and Mamer will be racing off-the-shelf Falken Tires rather than special race compounds and expect to be highly competitive.
