Default pro-line racing shakes up team for 2009

hey all: Over the last few weeks a number of top off road drivers who have been with pro-line have been switching tire brands. Could this be based on pro-line desideing to revamp/down size their race team for 2009 givin the tough economy were're in right now and or coud it be that it's a crowded tire market now and every company just want's a piece of the action. Thanks for the info

Tabushi,

He said TOP offroad drivers! LOL.

Anyway, Racers are looking for two things, first and foremost money. The tire company has to pay if you get into the A. Second the tires have to be somewhat competitive, you aren't going to earn any money unless you make it to the higher mains.
