George piloted his Funco Motorsports No. 42 Kawasaki/Yokohama Super Lite – outfitted with off-the-shelf Geolandar A/T-S+ tires – to a fourth-place finish at Firebird International Raceway in Chandler, Ariz. to win the 2011 season championship. During the year he won five races and reached the podium nine out of 15 times.

“It takes three ingredients to win a championship,” says George, “performance, reliability and teamwork. That’s what I had with Yokohama and the Funco team. My Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S tires hooked up no matter what the track conditions were, and we didn’t have one flat tire all year. The teamwork between my Funco team and Yokohama’s tire technicians really paid off all year.”

“Chad proved his mettle in a tough Super Lite class this season,” notes Andrew Briggs, Yokohama’s senior manager of motorsports.

“He consistently ran in the front of the pack and had too much for the rest of the field,” Briggs says. “He and the Funco team did a fantastic job and the Geolandar A/T-S tires never let him down. It was a total team effort and Yokohama is proud to part of the team.”
