SUWANEE, Ga. (Feb. 3, 2003) — Maxxis International will be the title sponsor of an on/off-road rally March 7 in the Laurel Mountains in Pennsylvania.
The Suwanee-based marketing subsidiary of Taiwan´s Cheng Shin Rubber Industry Co. Ltd. said it is sponsoring the Maxxis PA On/Off-road Rally, a three-day event that will have as many as 40 teams participating. Along the route, the teams will collect clues and perform special tasks—such as building a log bridge and swapping rear and front tires on their vehicles—in their progress toward the finish line. The Outdoor Network will cover the race in six televised episodes, Maxxis said.
Event vehicles will be outfitted with Maxxis Mudzilla LT tires.
