Nexen Tire Makes KOH Debut

Nexen Tire America Inc. has taken its Roadian MTX Extreme Off-Road mud-terrain tires to the 2019 King of the Hammers in Johnson Valley, California Feb. 1-9.

Nexen Tire is partnering with True North Racing to showcase how well its leading off-road tires perform under extreme load and demanding environments, according to the company.

True Racing North will have two highly custom Jeep Grand Cherokee builds and one custom-fabricated off-road vehicle on the scene at this year’s King of the Hammers event:

  • Joey Shilliday’s 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee, racing in the 4600 Stock Class
  • Alex McNeil’s 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee, in the 4600 Stock Class
  • Lyndon Sheppard’s Brinkfab chassis off-road vehicle, competing in the 4800 Legends Class

“We’re excited to finally announce that we will be working with our newest sponsor, Nexen Tire,” said Shilliday, driver of the 2014 King of the Hammers’ winning ’98 Jeep Grand Cherokee. “We have tremendous goals for this year, and Nexen Tire will help solidify those goals and position True Racing North as a top contender during the annual King of the Hammers event.

“More than 90 percent of competitors who enter this competition do not finish. Teaming up with Nexen Tire means we have a better chance at winning this year, and we plan to capitalize on that thanks to our new Roadian MTX Extreme Off-Road tires.”
