Company Expands Brand into PRO 2 Short Course Racing for 2018
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., May 22nd, 2018– Radar Tires, today announced their partnership with young up-and-coming professional short-course off-road driver Daely Pentico for the 2018 Lucas Oil Midwest series.
Pentico, a Pro 2 rookie in 2017, made his debut with a top 10 finish in his first Pro 2 truck race at the Crandon Red Bull Amsoil Cup Race after leading the points in the 2017 The Off-Road Championship (TORC) series in Pro Buggy in 2016/2017.
“I’m super stoked to be part of the Omni United family, working directly with the Radar Tire brand in the United States for short course racing in my Pro2 truck starting this 2018 season,” said driver Daely Pentico.
Daely and his team will compete in the new off-road racing platform sponsored by Lucas Oil this season, utilizing the Radar Renegade tires. TORC announced on March 23 that it has canceled its 2018 season. To fill that void, Lucas Oil announced a partnership with three off-road tracks to form a new short-course racing platform.
“Team DPR is beyond excited to be working directly with the designers at Radar Tires. Daely is very fortunate to be the driver chosen to represent the great Radar Tire’s brand, said Dan Pentico, DPR Team Manager.
Daely boasts an impressive resume, with over 60 Amateur Podiums, 2 Class Championships and 5 different “Rookie Of The Year” awards and has earned the nickname of “The Rookie”. In 2015 Daely placed in the top 3 in both Lucas Oil Regional Series So-Cal and AZ, He also placed in the top 5 in the National Series with multiple podiums.
“I’m pleased to welcome Daely to the Radar Tires family, and we’re proud to expand our racing success into Pro 2 with Daely Pentico racing” said Scott Rhodes, Vice President of Sales for Omni United USA, “We’re excited to offer customers a product that not only performs well and is race-proven, but is also at a price point many consumers desire.”
In 2013, Radar Tires entered into the off-road racing and motorsports world in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, SCORE International Desert Series and TORC: The Off Road Championship. In these series, the company participates in short-course off-road desert racing and long course desert racing. Radar’s inaugural season featured the brand’s Renegade R5 M/T tire and has since expanded to include the company’s other Renegade products. The company has since enjoyed multiple wins and podiums in both desert and short course racing.
