Renee Hudson Wins NORRA 1000 – MRT

Hudson wins Modified UTV Class driving MRT Race Tires

Huntington Beach, CA and Prairie du Chien, WI – May 10, 2018 – MRT Race Tires ( were a contributing winning factor for Renee Hudson “Getting Dirty for the Ta Tas”, as she earned 1st place in the Modified UTV Class, NORRA 1000 and took 48th place overall! NORRA (National Off Road Racing Association) 1000, is a 5 day, 1000 mile race from Ensenada to Cabo across a rough and rocky terrain.

“Every day brought many challenges and some minor issues, but we made it across the finish line each day in the top 2”, according to Renee Hudson. On Day 3, Hudson, running about 80mph, hit something in the road and split the wheel in half… the MRT Race tire withstood the impact and remained intact.  Hudson quickly recovered, but ahead she had to maneuver one of the biggest rock gardens on the planet.  Almost at the end of the check point, her vehicle died – a jump from a chase truck was enough to get her across the check point to the pit for a quick repair, then across the finish line in Lareto.  Day 4 Hudson smoked both of her rear axles about 60 miles from the finish in La Paz, but she was able to make it across the finish once again.  Day 5 was the final leg to Cabo, and the finish line.  The final 16 miles were a challenge with the dust conditions and Hudson turned to the rally book to navigate to the finish line. “It was the most amazing feeling in the world to have actually driven all 1,368 miles of NORRA and to win the Modified UTV Class. I am so blessed and thankful for all who have so much faith in me!” exclaimed Hudson.  “My MRT Race Tires were subjected to a rough and rocky terrain and didn’t let me down! Thank you MRT!”   Renee Hudson races for “Getting Dirty for the Ta Tas” an all female offroad racing team dedicated to driving awareness and finding a cure for breast cancer.
