said Guthrie Sr. "The ITP Blackwater Evolution tires are the one item that actually touches the ground on my race and recreational cars; so I am fully committed to having the best possible tires out there and one that's manufactured in the USA."
Marc Burnett competed at the KOH UTV race for the first time in a new Can-Am Maverick X3 X rc outfitted with proven ITP Ultra Cross R Spec tires. Burnett is very familiar with desert racing, but the rookie KOH racer proved rather resilient in the rocks, too, coming away with a top 10 finish.
