AKRON (April 22, 2005) — Goodyear will continue as an associate sponsor of the Championship Off-Road Racing (CORR) series, CORR said.
The 2005 season kicks off May 21-22 in Lake Odessa, Mich. The series is carried on the Speed Channel cable network, reaching 63 million households, CORR said.
“Goodyear has experienced great past success in all forms of off-road racing, including the CORR series, and we have been able to showcase our tires on various off-road trucks that have captured the checkered flag,” said Steve Miller, Goodyear's marketing and promotions manager. The tire maker will feature its Goodyear Wrangler MT/R product line in the competition.
