Maxxis-Sponsored Athletes Steal the Show at AMSOIL Championship

Maxxis-Sponsored Athletes Win Big at AMSOIL Championship

Jimmy Henderson earned a career-first Pro 4 win at Round 3 and then went on to take first place again the next day.

Maxxis’s sponsored athletes took ownership of the Big House, continuing the company’s dominance of AMSOIL Championship Off-Road racing.

Jimmy Henderson earned a career-first Pro 4 win at Round 3 and then went on to take first place again the next day, and Trey Gibbs took the Pro Lite victory on Sunday.

Other Maxxis athletes also turned in great results at AMSOIL Championship Off-Road Rounds 3 and 4, held June 24-25 in Crandon, Wisconsin.

Henderson’s determination turned Round 4 into a real barn-burner. After leading for most of the race, he was passed by another athlete, but he stayed close to the front car and was awarded first place after a review by race officials.

Henderson rode Maxxis RAZR AT tires to victory.

“We have been close in years past with second- and third-place finishes, but now with the Maxxis advantage, we have our first Pro4 win,” he said. “The durability and grip created space for us to place the truck back on the first-place podium in Round 4.”

Henderson’s fellow Maxxis athlete Adrian Cenni, who is having an outstanding season so far, took second place at Round 4.

Gibbs, now in his first year as a Maxxis athlete, won Sunday’s Pro Lite race after taking second place the day before. Brody Eggleston also made the podium, taking third place in the class at Round 4. Maxxis’ athletes primarily rode the RAZR AT and Bravo AT-771 in Pro Lite at Crandon.

Also riding RAZR AT tires was veteran Maxxis athlete Mickey Thomas. Thomas was in the Pro 2 top three at both rounds, taking third place Saturday and second place Sunday.

Trey Eggleston was on the Pro Stock SxS podium in third place Saturday. Most Maxxis SxS athletes chose the Maxxis Liberty or the Maxxis Ceros for the weekend’s racing; Maxxis-sponsored athletes have won championships on both tires.

Nick Byng powered his way to the Super Stock Truck podium, taking second place at Round 4, and Maxxis driver Dylan Parsons made the Pro Spec top five.

AMSOIL Championship Off-Road Rounds 5 and 6 are scheduled for July 14-15 in Elk River, Minnesota.
