ITP racer Mitch Guthrie Jr. kicked off the 2017 Best In The Desert (BITD) racing series by winning the UTV overall and UTV Pro Turbo class at the 2017 Parker 250 in Arizona. Branden Sims joined Guthrie on the box, finishing third in his No. 913 Polaris RZR dressed in ITP UltraCross R Spec tires. ITP racers notched four of the top five finishing times at the opening round, aka the UTV Winter Nationals, all coming UTV Pro Turbo class.
“With last weekend’s Parker 250 win, I was happy to be able to count on ITP UltraCross tires to guide me to the finish line with zero flats and a flawless race,” said Guthrie Jr.
“It’s great to start the season with a win and to have it go to such a great, humble kid like Mitch Guthrie Jr.,” said Rhett Turpin, head of ITP sales. “ITP UltraCross R Spec tires continue to dominate in the BITD series. To have four of the top five finishers says a lot about the UltraCross R Spec tire’s design, durability and dependability for desert racing. It’s also great proof for those recreational riders out there searching for a reliable and versatile tire for their side-by-side vehicle.”
