BFGoodrich® Tires endures as a brand and a culture because of the people. Here, we talk to the people who put themselves in the hands of the rubber we make: racers, the builders, the grassroots enthusiasts.
In 2016, the Performance Team drove two BC cars in the Baja 1000. However, this year, almost everyone on the team got sick. Some folks couldn't race; some chose to get sick in the car; but at the end the BC teams took home a 1-2 finish in their class.
The Baja 1000 is rightly focused on racing, but to get from start to finish, you need a support system. The BFG Pits — a mostly volunteer crew of mechanics, engineers, and enthusiasts — have been that support system for years. We talk with Bob Bower, the founder of the pit support network, as well as Nate Hunt, who currently oversees the pits.…

BFGoodrich® Tires built its reputation by being a friend of the racer — especially the little guys. Peter Calhoun, BFGoodrich® Tires' motorsports marketing director, joins us to talk about his role.
When we're little, everyone plays in the dirt — boys and girls. Charlene Bower and Sara Price talk about how they — and other women in the automotive industry — are making sure that's still the case.
The 1970s formed the backbone of BFGoodrich® Tires' modern legacy and reputation. Tires mattered, but people mattered more. On this episode, Bob Bower, Jeff Cummings, and Richard Winchester join us to talk about their role in the beginning.
