STI Tire & Wheel is proud to support the 2016 Polaris RZR UTV World Championship powered by Monster Energy in Laughlin, Nevada. As an Official Sponsor of the 2nd annual event, STI Tire & Wheel will be on site with product displays, and will award new STI Tire & Wheel products to winners of the event’s Family Poker Run.

The HD5 Beadlock wheels are equipped with Roctane XS tires to make powerful cornering a snap.

The #1948 Monster Energy Polaris race car driven by Matt Burroughs will be on display. Visitors can also get a close-up look at the the #1952 Lonestar Racing Polaris RZR driven by Jonathan McVay.

STI Tire & Wheel recently introduced the Chicane RX tire, an innovative dual-sport radial that delivers race-ready steering and traction performance. When mounted on STI’s HD5 Beadlock wheels, the Chicane tires are an even better choice for UTV racers.

“We are excited to see the growth of this important event,” said STI’s Craig Petersen. “As the UTV industry grows, all of us – aftermarket manufacturers and UTV owners – are looking for new ways to participate. We were involved with last year’s inaugural UTV World Championship, and are proud to be a part of this event’s future.”

The UTV World Championship events begin Thursday, Feb. 18 with an industry summit meeting held at Laughlin’s Colorado Belle hotel. The event action continues with the Family Poker Run Friday at the Laughlin Off-Road Park. Racing begins Saturday morning, Feb. 20.
