BFGoodrich® Tires builds truck tires for any adventure, including those that take drivers off their daily roadways. Through its Outstanding Trails program that promotes sustainable and responsible off-road driving, BFGoodrich Tires once again will award grants of $4,000 each to these qualified and passionate off-road clubs in North America. These clubs will use their grants to continue their efforts that preserve and protect their hometown trails.
“BFGoodrich Tires stands shoulder-to-shoulder with enthusiast off-road communities in seeking to preserve and protect responsible off-road activities,” said Duane Thomas, brand communications manager for BFGoodrich Tires. “The Outstanding Trails program promotes getting out and challenging the four-wheel drive culture to prove they are driver enough to explore their world. After receiving more than 150 nominations, we are proud to recognize and reward these four clubs and their efforts to enhance their trails.”
As Outstanding Trails celebrates its 10th year, BFGoodrich selected 4 Wheel Parts as presenting sponsor of this year’s program. 4 Wheel Parts helped promote the program and provided a critical outreach extension to four-wheel-drive clubs across North America. The program also is conducted in collaboration with United Four Wheel Drive Associations (UFWDA), Blue Ribbon Coalition and the Off Road Business Association (ORBA).
“4 Wheel Parts is proud to join BFGoodrich Tires as an Official Partner of the Outstanding Trails Program,” said 4 Wheel Parts President and CEO, Greg Adler. “We are pleased to share in this opportunity to recognize the passionate members of some of North America’s prominent off-road clubs for their commitment to the preservation of these significant trails.”
To date, Outstanding Trails has awarded grants to 36 off-road trails nominated by 35 local clubs throughout North America. The program has provided more than $140,000 in grants in support of these trail conservation efforts.
