Yokohama’s Advan A054 has been announced as the official tire for Nitro Rallycross (NRX). The new event will take place at the 3rd Annual Nitro World Games on September 22-23, at Utah Motorsports Campus near Salt Lake City.

NRX uses an all-new track layout on a purpose-built track. Nitro Circus co-founder Travis Pastrana will compete in the inaugural NRX event against a host of top competitors.

“Developed specifically for rallycross, the Advan A054 features an FIA-approved groove pattern and incorporates an ultra-stiff construction with a high-traction compound,” said Fardad Niknam, Yokohama’s senior director of consumer product planning and product marketing.

“We’re pleased to continue our partnership with Nitro Circus and Nitro World Games,” said Andrew Briggs, Yokohama Tire, vice president of marketing. “These are pure, high-octane action events and we’ve found them to be the perfect venues to spotlight our brand.”
