MINNEAPOLIS (Sept. 12, 2013) — The Mystik Lubricants Terracross Championship for Polaris two-seat all-terrain vehicles has named Greenball Corp.'s GBC brand its official tire sponsor.
The series features classes for the Polaris RZR 1000 XP, 850 4x4 and RZR 900s models.
"To prevent having tire problems, we teamed up with GBC tire and Walker Evans Wheels, knowing they can handle the rough, tough and muddy courses of Mystik Terracross," said Joe Duncan, sport organizer for Terracross.
Greenball said Terracross competitors will rely on the GBC Kanati Mongrel tire at all Mystik Lubricants Terracross Championship events this season.
Wes Miller, a champion racer in the Multiple Baja — a peninsula in Mexico that is famous for its desert racing — will be piloting the GBC-sponsored RZR XP1000 in the Terracross series. Mr. Miller, who also is known for creating the "Huevos" movie series, said he won SCORE Championships four times as well as the San Felipe 250, Baja 500 and Baja 1000 multiple times.
Kory Ellis, sales and marketing representative for GBC, said "the Kanati Mongrel uses the same diamond-shaped tread design" as the Kanati Mud Hog, the company's light truck tire, and is DOT-approved, N-rated to 85 mph and carries a 600-pound load rating.

GBC Motorsports was formed in 1995 with a focus on bringing performance tires to the ATV and Powersports market, but Greenball has been in the tire game since 1980, when it sent it's first ATV tire to market.
The Mystik Lubricants Terracross Championship features off-road and action sports athletes competing on Quads and Side-X-Sides on a rough, muddy course complete with obstacles such as rocks, logs, jumps and tight turns. Races are aired on CBS Sports Network.
