New McMullen and Bell TT Team signs deal W/ Maxxis
The newly formed MCMullen and Bell race team out of Phoenix, AZ ( Albert McMullen of MCM Motorsports and Mike Bell of Bell Cement Tools) have just finalized a sponsorship deal with Maxxis Tires. The team will be running 40" Maxxis Creepy Crawler tires on their brand new Trophy Truck. "Before both side made a final commitment we wanted to run the tires under race conditions on our brand new Trophy Truck to make sure they would perform under the incredible conditions a 5000lb+, 750 HP truck puts on tires. We ran them down in Rocky Point, Mex in the inaugural ProDesertRacing Desert Rat 250 and they were unbelievable. We hit a huge piece of concrete and suffered a flat. We thought the tire failed but once we got back to the shop we discovered that we had hit the concrete so hard we bent the wheel and just knocked all the air out of the tire. No damage to the tire at all. We repaired the wheel and the tire works perfect". The first SCORE race for the truck will be the Terrible's Cup II in Vegas this July.
