Milestar signs partnership with Hammerking Productions to become The Official UTV Tire of King of the Hammers
Gardena, CA – Feb 1, 2023 – Milestar® Tires is excited to announce a partnership with Hammerking Productions® to be the Official UTV Tire of King of the Hammers® (KOH) in 2023. The partnership builds upon Milestar’s 2022 Win in the 4500-Class with John Mathews. Milestar rolls onto the lakebed in many ways with the Patagonia SXT and SXS on all of the KOH support vehicles, a strong race contingency program for qualifying racers and two factory-backed UTV teams for the various UTV-focused competitions during race week.
The PATAGONIA SXS and SXT are both UTV and Side-By-Side specific off-road tires designed to conquer the harshest desert and rock conditions. Formulated with a cut and chip resistant, silica-enriched tread compound, the tire are capable of providing competent traction in the silt, sand and rocks. Deep, wide grooves with stone ejectors help disperse dirt and debris, while overlapping wide tread blocks maintain stability and provide sure-footed control no matter the driving conditions. The differences between the SXS and SXT are in overall construction: where the SXS has a total polyester belt package; the SXT is constructed with a Kevlar® belt package to enhance strength while keeping the tires carcass weight as light as possible.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to support King of the Hammers and the UTV Classes this year,” said Martin Castro, Events & Activation Manager at Milestar Tires. “The Patagonia Product Line of tires not only covers Light-Truck Vehicles, but the ever-growing UTV market as well. From the OEM-size of 28-Inches all the way up to a 34-Inch SXT, we have several options to choose from.”
“In becoming potentially the largest Off-Road Motorsport Event in the world, the Progressive King of the Hammers has grown to include nearly every class of competition that hits the dirt,” said Dave Cole, Owner of Hammerking Productions. “With that, you need a diverse group of invested partners that are able to support those competitors. Milestar Tires leveraged their Patagonia Products to support racers in several classes as well as made sure all of the Crimple Factory support Can-Ams have fresh rubber for the duration of KOH. The vehicles, like our volunteers, are the backbone of ensuring a great week of racing!”
There will be two Milestar Factory-backed teams running during the King of the Hammers UTV Race. Logan Goodall will be competing in his #1950 2019 Polaris RZR Turbo S and rolling on 34X10R15 Milestar Patagonia SXTs. Logan has competed in UTV and 4800-class cars in various classes since 2016. He took a worthy 1st Place at the 2021 Ultra4 San Felipe race in the 4800-Class. Jeff Bader will be competing in his #888 2022 Polaris Pro R shod with 34X10R15 Milestar Patagonia SXTs. He has notched multiple Spec Trophy Truck® podiums over the last few years, culminating in a class win for the 2020 SCORE Baja 1000. They both bring a diverse and competitive background to the KOH UTV races.
