“We’re thrilled to come on board as a partner with the renowned Bassmaster Classic Tournament,” said Andrew Briggs, Yokohama Tire’s VP of marketing and product management. “It’s a great opportunity to connect with their passionate fan base about our wide range of tires. We’re really looking forward to getting out to this year’s event, interacting with both the fans and anglers and showing what Yokohama is all about.”

Yokohama will have an outdoor experiential activation at the event’s tailgate and live set area, which will include an autograph session with Pastrana, tire giveaways, a GEOLANDAR tire line and vehicle display, including an Ultra4 race truck driven by Levi Shirley, along with unique truck builds by partners like Complete Customs.

“We are so excited to partner with Yokohama for the Bassmaster Classic tailgate party.
