Maxxis Tires will serve as a supporting sponsor of the inaugural California 300, coming to Barstow, California on October 12-16, event officials announced today. As part of the partnership, numerous drivers will be competing on Maxxis Tires throughout the event, particularly in UTV World Championship desert and short course events.

“Maxxis Tires has a long heritage of supporting off-road racing, and we’re excited to welcome them to the inaugural California 300,” said California 300 CEO Matt Martelli. “With decades of experience producing any tire imaginable, it’s no surprise to see so many UTV entries ranging from desert pros to youth short course racers trusting Maxxis to get them to the finish on race day. We’re grateful for their support of the inaugural event and look forward to seeing Maxxis drivers in action here in Barstow!”
