Dixon & Son Tires Sponsors Desert Dingo Racing 2013 Off-Road Racing Season
March 4, 2013, Watsonville, Calif. — Dixon & Sons Tires, Inc. announced today that it is sponsoring Desert Dingo Racing’s 2013 off road racing season, including the Baja 1000 in Mexico in November 2013.
“Off road racing is the ultimate test for a set of tires,” said Dixon & Son owner Dusty Dixon. “We like what Desert Dingo does, on the race course and in the community and we’re proud to support their race program.”
Desert Dingo Racing campaigns a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle in off road races in the U.S. and Mexico. The team is the official World Diabetes Day off road race team and works with the International Diabetes Federation to raise money for diabetes education and awareness programs. The team makes the car available for public events and distributes thousands of hero cards with the warning signs of diabetes printed on the back in English and Spanish.
“A flat tire can mean the difference between winning and losing a race,” Graham said. “The team at Dixon & Son has already helped us on our previous attempts at the Baja 1000 and we’re looking forward to working closely with them during our 2013 race season.”
The team was Class Champions in the 2011 Valley Off Road Racing Association series in 2011 and first runner up in 2012, including first place finishes at the Fallon Night Vision 250 and Prairie City short course racing. After a three-year break, the team will return to race the Baja 1000 in November 2013.
