Yokohama Tire announced it will showcase its rich racing heritage at the 2019 SEMA Show by highlighting its several ultra-high performance (UHP) and off-road/light truck tires.
The company says it will partner with Nitro Circus and SEMA Ignited to present another exclusive, high-octane Nitro Circus Freestyle Motocross (FMX) show for consumers on Friday, November 8.
Located just outside South Hall, Yokohama’s new activation truck and trailer will anchor the race-themed booth, which will have distinct UHP and light truck sections, highlighting both their motorsports roots and new product lineup. Several unique cars will be on hand in a visually impactful multi-level display.
