It was a day of firsts for both Nic Granlund and STI Tire & Wheel. Granlund scored his first Pro SxS victory at round six of the 2013 World Off-Road Championship Series, held at Pala Raceway in Southern California. The former ATV champ topped a field of more than 50 UTVs during the six-lap race on a rugged course consisting of both desert and motocross terrain.
