Riding on Grabber Competition tires, David Schneider also grasped championship honors in class 4400, as did Louis Chamberlin in class 7-2 with Grabber AT2 tires.

Procuring General’s first championship in a desert racing series since its re-launch into desert racing in 2007, Team GT pulled out all the stops, according to marketing director Travis Roffler.

“These wins are exactly how we wanted to end the 2010 off- road season,” says Roffler. “Our performance here proves that Team GT isn’t going anywhere. We’ve made our mark on the desert with some of the best drivers and best tires in the industry and we are here to stay. We are extremely proud of our entire Team GT results and look forward to an outstanding 2011 off-road season,” he adds.

“I was on a mission this year,” says Baldwin. “I wanted to be the first General Tire racer to bring them a championship, and I am proud to say we accomplished the goal and brought the fans some exciting racing all season,” he reports.

“The Grabbers performed excellent all year and are a huge factor in my winning strategy,” Baldwin continues. “My team is so pumped on winning this championship, and we are looking forward to dropping the hammer again on the competition next season.”
