Former AMA ATV Motocross National Champion Josh Creamer has announced that he will be using ITP tires throughout the 2013 National ATV MX race season. As you may recall, Creamer dominated the 2010 ATV MX Nationals for his first major title, then competed on the West Coast in 2011. Josh moved closer to his native New England for the 2012 season and won both the Pro and Pro-Am championships in the highly competitive NEATV MX Series. Josh states, "Team BCS/Can-Am and I are really excited for the 2013 AMA season! With ITP and their great new product on board, this is going to be a great year!"
“We are thrilled that Josh has chosen ITP products for competition in 2013,” stated Rhett Turpin, Director of Sales & Marketing – Powersports for ITP/Carlisle Transportation Products. “We are confident that Josh’s skill and determination, coupled with a solid ITP MX product offering for 2013, will be a winning combination.”
ITP is proud of its racing heritage and will continue to support the sport with its “MX Bucks” and “XC Bucks” contingency programs in 2013. Since 1982, ITP has grown into the world's #1 ATV/UTV aftermarket tire and wheel source, and continues to provide a complete line of innovative tires and wheels for virtually all ATVs and UTVs in both recreational and competitive categories.

Raceline Wheels Jason Divis and Greg Wells will be alternating driving duties of a 2013 Arctic Cat in the Production 1000 class at the 2013 HCR UTV King of the Hammers race. “What better way to test and prove the strength of the Raceline UTV wheels and tires than to race them in the hardest UTV race known to date,” said Jason Divis, Raceline UTV Division Manager. “We trail ride and go to Glamis all the time, so being in the rocks will be totally different and exciting.”
Raceline recently released the new A71 Mamba beadlock wheel
. It is a true beadlock that features a forged billet aluminum outer ring, 20 bolt beadlock system and enduro inner lip technology. The A71-Mamba
is arguably the best looking beadlock on the market.
Raceline Wheels also produces the Raceline MT Tire specifically for
side-by-sides. This aggressive tire comes in 25” to 30” options. All the
Raceline SXS Wheels and Tires are available through most powersports
“We bought the Arctic Cat basically for marketing purposes, to display at shows and continually test our wheels, I don’t think we ever intended to race it,” said Divis. “We just decided to do this a couple weeks ago so I have been gathering up parts and we installed most of them last weekend. We will only have the week of the event to pre-run.” The list of parts going on the Arctic Cat is extensive! Arctic Cat brand Aluminum Front Bumper, Aluminum Rear Bumper, Half Windshield, Plastic Roof, Shoulder Bag and Trunknet. The PCI Arctic Cat Radio Mount will hold the Rugged Radio with Intercom and King Shocks for ultimate suspension. ProArmor has delivered Doors, Aluminum Roof, 3” 5-point Seat Belt Harness, Harness Bar, Passenger Handle and Quickshot spare tire holder. PRP Seats, Limiter straps and Window Nets will add safety. A DP Clutch Kit, Clutch Fan, Vents and Winch Mount for the TJM Winch will be installed.

STI tires and wheels are available at finer ATV/UTV dealers everywhere
STI Tire & Wheel continues to set new standards for creative innovation in the ATV/UTV tire industry with the introduction of the all-new Roctane XD. This new extreme duty radial tire is loaded with features to meet the highest demands of today’s machines and consumers.
For example, the Roctane XD’s 8-ply-rated radial carcass is built to confidently handle ever larger, faster and heavier UTV applications. With this requirement in mind, the Roctane is being rolled out in 11 sizes, including super-tall 30- and 32-inch models.
Sizing is 25x8R-12, 25x10R-12, 26x9R-12, 26x11R-12, 26x9R-14, 26x11R-14,27x9R-14, 27x11R-14, 28x10R-14, 30x10R-14 and 32x10R-14. Yes, that size range makes the Roctane XD a solid choice for many ATV applications as well.
A heavier denier nylon cord maximizes tire toughness while retaining flexibility for a comfortable ride. The Roctane’s unique, non-directional tread design and wide profile footprint deliver smooth, quiet operation and precise control.
STI’s exclusive new RocWall sidewall construction features reinforced lower sidewalls and extra-wide tread belts for added shoulder protection and stability. Add in super-deep RocGuard rim guards to protect even the thickest wheel lips from trail damage, and the result is the most reliable tire on the market. The Roctane XD’s specially formulated tread compound extends its life even further, yet it still grips the slickest rocks like a dedicated wall-crawler.
With so much going for it, most would expect to pay a premium price for the Roctane. That is not the case, however, as this new tire is being offered at a strikingly reasonable price.
1-1/8" Deep aggressive tread pattern that works excellent on trail or in extreme conditions.
Computer designed "smooth ride" tread pattern offers a comfortable ride and excellent traction.
6ply heavy duty radial construction offers stabillity, control.
High grade rubber compound brings the ultimate in traction and excellent tread life wear.

Despite what your parents may have told you, monsters do exist. We know because They created one. ITP has just released the all-new Monster Mayhem, a 30-inch-diameter mud/trail tire with 1 3/4-inch-long claws ready to strike fear in the heart of any mudhole with your UTV/ATV.
This creature is not the first of its kind. The Monster Mayhem has wickedness in its DNA. Like its forebears — the ITP Mayhem and Mega Mayhem — this latest incarnation stalks in quietly on a unique tread pattern that that gives it a smooth, quiet approach on harder surfaces. The Monster Mayhem’s lightweight 6-ply carcass lets it pounce with exceptional acceleration, braking and maneuverability. Like the entire Mayhem breed, the Monster Mayhem is extremely hard to bring down due to its uncanny stamina. And you always know it’s a Mayhem if you can get close: just look for the distinctive, tribal-inspired, embossed markings on its sides.
The fearsome Monster Mayhem — with an intimidating 1.75-inch tread depth — springs into action now in two sizes: 30x9-14 front and 30x10-14 rear. Like the rest of its family, the Monster Mayhem was conceived and uncaged in America. It is the meanest, most aggressive beast you’ll find on home soil — or anywhere else.

Two and a half months is a long time for a racer to wait. If
they’re in contention for a championship there is a lot of chomping at the bit
to get back to work. If they’re not in it to win it, they just want to try to
salvage the season, polish some skills while looking ahead to next year, or
simply have some fun with the series “family.” Of course if they’re among the
few who actually are leading in the point standings, the season cannot end soon
As the traditional summer break of the 2012
Grand National Cross Country Series drew to a close, Team ITP was apparently
ready to rock the final four events on the schedule. With fresh ITP Holeshot
and QuadCross tires mounted on their newly tuned quads, our guys and gals were
clearly well rested and motivated at the rugged Unadilla circuit, one of the
icons of powersports.
Dave Simmons (Yam) once again dominated the morning race, winning the overall by
close to four minutes. It was his seventh overall triumph of the season and
tenth straight victory in the Super Senior 45+ class.
Also claiming a big win was Glenn McConnell (Yam). This Masters 50+ competitor
grabbed his fifth victory of the season and in the process snuck into the
points lead for the first time in 2012. After skipping the first race of the
year he had been gradually moving up the leaderboard, and Unadilla would be the
Angel Atwell (Hon) finished eighth overall in the morning and second in the Women’s
class. She is keeping things tight in this battle, down by just eight in the
season points chase.
One Team ITP rider who would probably like
the season to be over is Pat McGuire (Yam). Before the summer break he was
leading the way in the XC2 Pro Am standings. But he’s obviously having too much
fun and added to his points gap by snatching his third victory of the year and
placing seventh overall in the afternoon event.
Not far behind in this class was Matt Hanna (Yam). This Greg’s ATV-backed
up-and-comer ended the day in fourth place for XC2, which was good enough to
move him up one spot to fourth in the standings (just two points out of
Adam McGill (Hon) is probably ready to wipe the 2012 season completely off the
memory card. After yet another competitive performance which saw him leading
the premier XC1 Pro division early, he suffered yet another heartbreaking Did
Not Finish. Knowing Adam and his positive attitude, however, he’s probably
ready to uproot tall pines at the next race.
That will come at the ITP-sponsored Powerline Park GNCC in St. Clairesville, OH, on

The last hurrah. The big kahuna. Judgement day. No matter how
you characterize it, the 2012 ATV MX National Championship Series reached a dramatic conclusion at the Loretta Lynn’s Ranch. After nine rounds, thousands of miles and gallons of blood, sweat and tears, America’s fastest and most dedicated motocross quad racers gathered at this iconic facility in central Tennessee to bring closure to a long, exciting, hard-fought
Capping an already successful schedule, Team ITP wrapped things
up neatly with several event victories and overall
Maci Devenport applied the coup de grace to the Girls (12-15)
class with a 1-1 moto sweep. It was her fourth overall victory in a row (fifth
for the season), and earned her the crown after trailing in points all year.
This stunning performance came on the heels of a dominant 90 Production (8-15)
campaign which allowed her to skip the class at Loretta’s altogether and still
claim that title by a wide margin.
ITP champion is Samuel Rowe, who had already wrapped up the Schoolboy Jr.
(13-15) division before the season finale. This Janssen
River Racing rider backed that up with the runner-up slot in the final
Schoolboy Sr. (14-17) standings. He decided to race the College (16-24) class
instead at Loretta’s and enjoyed a 2-2, second overall
As he has done throughout the year, Merrill Crose entered four
classes. In eight total motos, this privateer never finished lower than second.
It added up to overall wins in 450 A and Open A, as well as runner-up rides in
Junior 25+ and Veteran 30+. In the final standings this ironman was second for
the series in all four classes.
Root River Racing’s Haedyn Mickelson was also a star ITP
performer, picking up the Schoolboy Jr. (13-15) overall with a 1-1 sweep. Solid
2-2 rides in Schoolboy Sr. (14-17) netted second overall in that class too. He
did not compete as usual in the Super-Mini (13-15) division, but still ended up
in the top three in the final standings — just as he did in the other two
Our vote for “most improved” during the season would go to
Dalton Hicks. He capped a progressive 2012 with his first overall triumph of the
year at Loretta Lynn’s, in Production A. The Root River-backed Hicks was also
second overall in 450 A, repeating his best-of-the-series result in that class
at round nine. He ended up fifth and third in the standings in those two
Kyle Fix was consistent and highly competitive at Loretta’s,
placing second in four motos to claim second overall in both the Pro Am
Production and Pro Am Unlimited classes. These were season-best finishes as
Janssen Motorsports/Roberts Racing Outlaws’ Chloe Buerster
closed the door on a solid season with a moto win and second overall in the
Women’s class, putting her in second for the year. Perhaps more impressive was
her fourth place in the final 4-Stroke B standings — a large class with some
Mike Barnhart climbed the podium twice in Tennessee, thanks to a
moto win and top-threes in Open A and Veteran 30+. This Root River team member
ended the year third in points in the former, fourth in the
Riding for Janssen Motorsports/Roberts Racing Outlaws, Cody
Janssen earned a moment in the sun with a strong 3-3, third overall Pro Am
Unlimited ride at round ten. This cemented his excellent third in the series in
this class. Fellow ITP rider Sean Taylor ended up right behind in
let’s drop the curtain on 2012 with a thumbs-up to Jefferey Rastrelli. This
Florida native toughed out a challenging rookie season in the Pro class and
finished it up with his finest ride of the year in the final moto of the year
to grab seventh for the day and top-ten in the nation in the final
