Team ITP racers won seven classes and earned a total of 21 podiums at round seven of the AMA Mountain Dew ATV Motocross National in Pennsylvania on July 6.
“Our ITP ATV racers once again put in an outstanding effort, winning seven classes and recording numerous podium finishes. After seven rounds in the books, our riders are in the running for several class championships and that fact alone validates the performance and design of our tires,” said Pat McGuire, Public Relations / Race Support.
