The STI Tire & Wheel crew made another appearance at the Windrock Park Fall ATV/SXS Jamboree, held October 18-20, 2012, near Oliver Springs, Tennessee. We just can’t resist this place and event. What a weekend! The temperature was in the high 70s with lows in the 40s at night.
We had a blast showing the STI booth to the public. It drew a lot of attention with the all-new and yet-to-be-released Roctane tire out front. Many people asked numerous questions of when and where it will be for sale. The tire got good feedback from almost everyone that looked at it. We also had fun giving away special STI bandanas and they were a huge hit. They showed up throughout the weekend.
The 30” STI Silverback-XLites mounted on STI HD Beadlocks on one of our display buggies still draws attention everywhere it goes, including during Friday night’s haunted trail ride and a Saturday night trail ride. The Silverback-XLite’s ride is good and the grip even better (we crawled up a hill that 900 XPs had to hit really hard).
The weekend’s events also included a mud bog, a poker run, a drag race, a sled pull, the Windrock Challenge and Windrock Wide Open races, a kids’ scavenger hunt, a corn hole tournament and a dash for cash.
STI provided a couple of sets of tires and the winners were Daniel Quarles of Birchwood, Tennessee (Silverback-XLites) — he won the Windrock Challenge on a Raptor 660 — and Justin Hoback of Collierville, Tennessee, who took home some Black Diamonds for his victory in the Windrock Challenge SxS with a Rhino 700. Congratulations, guys!
