TrailReady Beadlocks Join Forces with SMD Motorsports for Baja 1000 and 2006 Desert Racing Season

Heber, California (December 1, 2005) – TrailReady Beadlocks and SMD Motorsports are excited to announce a marketing partnership that kicked off at the 2005 SCORE Baja 1000 off road race. The union between these two companies has already strengthened as the #27 Trophy Truck featured, “Trailready” title sponsorship at the granddaddy of all off road races only two weeks ago.

TrailReady President Larry Trim commented, "We were looking for the right team to work with on our new forged wheel and SMD Motorsports provided the right fit. We admire their commitment not only to winning, but their devotion to partnering with their sponsors in successful marketing strategies. Our company is well known in competitive rock crawling, where 35-40% of the competitors use TrailReady Beadlocked wheels and we’d like to repeat that success in off-road racing. We’re delighted to be a part of the SMD Motorsports family.”

TrailReady is advancing wheel technology and their products are second to none. Testing and development of the TrailReady wheel products was well underway and the use of these same products under the extreme off road racing conditions at the Baja 1000 proved to be very successful.

The SMD Motorsports trophy truck suffered no wheel damage throughout the most technical challenging Baja 1000 race ever held. “TrailReady Beadlock wheels sustained hit-after-hit through some of the most difficult terrain we’ve ever faced and took us across the finish line without missing a beat – TrailReady is already a Baja proven winner. SMD Motorsports will campaign the 2006 desert racing season on TrailReady’s new forged wheel and we plan driving them up the podium next season,” explained Steve Scaroni.

Our many supporters include: Ford Motor Company, BFGoodrich Tires, SkyBitz, Mastercraft Seats, FOX Racing Shocks, TrailReady Beadlocks, VP Racing Fuel, Hella Lights and Pure Power Lubricants.
