Mueller Motorsports Reports on the TORC Big House Brawl

Scott Mueller of Mueller Motorsports and driver of #31 in the Pro2 class of the TORC series sent us an update on last weeks races in Crandon, WI.  The Big House Brawl was  a terrific challenge for the teams and for the Atturo Trail Blade MT.

Here's the word from Scott:

The #31 Pro 2WD Atturo Tire, Mueller Automotive race truck came into this race looking for a finish after DNF’s in the last two rounds.

Saturday Round 5:

The #31 Atturo Tire, Mueller Automotive truck had a good start and was in a tight battle when Mueller came in contact with the #17 truck, damaging the right front suspension and one lap later breaking the rear axle gear and ending with another DNF. The crew whole-heartedly worked on the truck replacing the rear gear set and front upper a-arm, making it race ready for Sunday.

Sunday Round 6:

The Atturo tires were hooked to the track with a good start. At the competition caution #31 was in 6th place, a spin on lap 8 dropped Mueller back to a 7th place final finish.

The Big Announcement! 

The Next Round of racing is in Bark River, MI on July 15-16.

The #31 Pro 2WD will be racing a new tire from Atturo, the Trail Blade XT, along with the Trail Blade MT!  This is the debut of the XT in the racing circuit.

Gross - Earhart Race Team Sends Atturo Greetings From Baja 500

We received word recently on Instagram that the off road race team of Gross-Earhart (Co-drivers Cooper Gross and Jeff Earhart, and builder Mike McComas) just completed their first Baja 500 off road race in their Ford F-150 that Mike McComas originally built the truck as a Factory Ford Race Truck in 1996.

Since then, the truck has won its class in the Baja 500 eight times. The nearly 600HP truck has been specially designed and equipped to handle just about anything Baja can throw at her. Especially since their renovated vehicle sports  Atturo Trail Blade M/T tires.

Here's what Cooper had to say:

"Thank you, Atturo Tires for being such a huge part of our team. The TrailBlade M/T exceeded all expectations. We never once had any traction issues.  Mud, silt, hard pack, asphalt, rocks the size of basketballs. They looked as good mounted on those Method Race Wheels at the end of our race as they did when we started. In fact where other racers were bogging down running the mighty BFGs we were pulling them out with ease. We look forward to the 1000!"

The New Mitsubishi NZ Triton Huntaway Sports Atturo Trail Blade MT Tyres!

Mitsubishi NZ just unveiled their new TRITON HUNTAWAY  "ute" (utility vehicle) for the New Zealand market.

This isn't a vehicle model that's for sale, but is built to demonstrate all of the cool mods one can make with the Triton using aftermarket accessories to replace OEM parts or as add-ons.

All of the customizations can be found here, but the most significant one is the pairing of DTM Fuel Ripper 20 inch wheels with Atturo Trail Blade M/T tyres.  This gives the Triton Huntaway a stance that's over 100mm above a regular Triton.

Visit our website and see how you can modify your truck or Jeep's stance with the Trail Blade series of tires (or tyres if you prefer).  They're aggressive styled and packed with off road performance!

Check out the video and see for yourself...

Best Wishes from The Bantam Heritage Jeep Festival

Atturo had a fantastic weekend in Butler, PA sponsoring activities at the Bantam Heritage Jeep Festival.  Definitely the place to be in Butler, PA as attendees, exhibitors and drivers gathered together to discuss (and "do")  all things Jeep.

Part of the fun was the Babes of Bantam Jeep Trail Ride that was sponsored by Atturo.  All lady drivers took to the trail for a rocky Pennsylvania ride.

Here's RuBARKon  which sports our Atturo Trail Blade BOSS tires.  You can read this Jeep's amazing origin story here.


And of course, we had plenty of Atturo Tires out and ready for display and sale.

Check out our Instagram Page for more exciting shots of the weekend!
