May 22, 2013

  • General Tire sponsors the five-stop Texas Team Trail angling tournament.

Fort Mill, SC – May 22, 2013.  The Texas Team Trail presented by Cabela’s continues to build on an impressive sponsor list with the recent addition of General Tire.  With four events in the books, the series’ next stop, Cedar Creek Lake, is sure to be action-packed.

“This partnership is a great opportunity for General Tire to reach core customers who depend on their trucks and boats to be in tiptop condition,” said Mike Hastings, tournament director of Texas Team Trail. “General Tire produces safe, dependable and durable tires. This is something that our anglers value and that makes General Tire a great partner for the Texas Team Trail.”

The tournament circuit, designed exclusively for team competition, recently kicked-off the 2013 season on Sam Rayburn Lake.  The schedule includes four qualifying events, plus a year-end championship, taking place on legendary Falcon Lake, October 12-13. The tournament will be broadcast nationally in the US and Canada on NBC Sports Outdoors, MAVTV, the Pursuit Channel, World Fishing Network (WFN), and the Texas Channel on Time Warner Cable (check local listings for air dates/times).

“Texas leads the country in new pickup truck sales so it’s an ideal fit for our General Tire Grabber line of light truck tires,” said Travis Roffler, director of marketing for General Tire.  “The Texas Team Trail series of events offers us the opportunity to speak to our core demographic and that’s extremely powerful.  This is a great series and we’re honored to be a part of it.”
