General Tire places 2nd in Tecate Baja 500

BJ Baldwin Takes Second Place in Trophy Truck at 2009 Tecate Baja 500
 
ENSENADA, BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO – (June 6, 2009) – “Ballistic” BJ Baldwin took on an arduous desert course to bring home second place in Trophy Truck at the 2009 Tecate Baja 500.
 
BJ battled fierce competition throughout the race, but finished on the podium to extend an outstanding season for Team General Tire.

“We are absolutely ecstatic about BJ’s podium finish today.  It was an extremely difficult course, but this was a crucial race for Team General Tire,” said Travis Roffler, director of marketing, General Tire.  “Being on the podium so consistently this season has solidified General Tire’s place among the best of the desert tires, and we are so proud to have BJ drive under our team colors.”
 
“This race was totally over the top,” BJ said.  “We were neck and neck with some very fierce competitors all day long, but the truck hung on and got us to the podium.  We’re thrilled with this finish.”
