STOW, OH – Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels will continue to support racing icon Brian Deegan in 2017 as he pursues Pro 2 class podium finishes in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS).

The 2017 LOORRS season will see aggressive action from Deegan, who will compete in a full-size, two-wheel drive, 700-900 horsepower race truck. The truck is built upon a standardized chassis, with an 18-inch front and 20-inch rear wheel travel limit, riding on Mickey Thompson’s Baja Pro tires. Deegan will seek to repeat his LOORRS Pro 2 championships of 2011 and 2012 competing against a fierce field of drivers.

“Brian represents everything that the legendary Mickey Thompson stood for, both on and off the track,” stated Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing for Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels. “He consistently pushes the limits of speed and athletic ability, defying what history claims to be possible, and is a true, positive ambassador for the sport and the Mickey Thompson brand.”

A key member of the all-star Team M/T, Deegan is one of the most decorated athletes in the history of action sports, continuing to collect titles in numerous racing categories including LOORRS, TORC Short Course, Freestyle Motocross, Global Rallycross and Monster Jam.
