Murray Racing Second at SCORE San Felipe 250 on ITP Tires
Ontario, California, March 4, 2014 – The Can-Am/ITP/Murray Racing team of Derek Murray, Monty Aldrich and Steve Amarine took second in Class 19 (UTV) at the 28th Annual Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 desert race in Mexico.
“The Murray Racing team put in a great effort and fought hard to earn the second spot on the podium,” said Pat McGuire, Public Relations/Race Support. “Once again, the ITP Ultracross tires proved to be the right choice for the rugged conditions of Baja and its varying desert terrain.”
The Murray team outfitted its side-by-side with 30-inch Ultracross tires mounted on T-9 Mod wheels. It’s the same tire they helped R&D specifically for ITP and it’s becoming a very successful and versatile choice for extreme desert racing conditions.
The Murray team was one of 12 finishers out of 14 entries in the Class 19 UTV class. They were in the front early on and looking for their first offical SCORE International series win, but were slowed due to a small mechanical. Once diagonosed and corrected, the team made up lots of ground, but couldn’t catch the eventual winner. The Murrays completed the shortened 219-mile course in second place with a time of 6:11:56.
