Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks 2014

The 2014 Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks event was awesome!  We will argue that it was the best side by side event of the year.  Don’t believe us?  Check out the links below for proof!

Prior to the event’s start Discount Tire teamed up with KYMCO and Tread Lightly! to sponsor a Trail Restoration Project on Hell’s Revenge. Read all about it here: Hell’s Revenge Trail Restoration Project.
