"We are extremely excited to return to motorsports this year after having limited involvement during the COVID-19 pandemic last year," said Paul Jho, motorsports senior manager at Nexen Tire America, Inc.


"During that downtime, we worked hard to identify the right set of drivers to best represent the Nexen Tire brand, and we’re thrilled to continue growing our racing program in Formula DRIFT, two different types of off-road racing and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. In addition, we are also supporting Allies of Autism to increase the awareness of families dealing with Autism. We are confident our drivers will have successful seasons filled with wins and podium finishes.”
