Geiser Brothers are returning to the IOUE. Since the very beginning, way back to the Original Arizona Sand Expos, the Rick and Jeff Geiser have always supported the hometown show.

Come see some of the most Wicked Celebrated Trophy Trucks and Pre-Runners in the Desert. Don’t forget to pick up a T-Shirt, hoodie, hat and show your support for Arizona’s Own Geiser Brothers and one of the Nations Original and Best Trophy Truck build teams. See you at the Expo!

BFG is Coming to the IOUE
After years of conversation BFG is finally coming to the International Off-Road & UTV Expo. “It’s been a long time in the works, and things on everyones ends need to come together but we did it, and I am super happy to have them in Arizona” states show owner Andy Myers. Look for BFG and their new UTV Tires at their booth in the front hall of the Expo! See you there.
In 1870, Dr. Benjamin Franklin Goodrich founded the first tire factory in North America, in Akron, Ohio. Even then, performance was already an integral part of the brand’s DNA. This led Charles Cross Goodrich, son of Benjamin, to establish the very first tire research centre in the United States. As a result, BFGoodrich began to stand out from the competition as early as 1903, when it provided the tires for the Winton Touring Car, the first car to cross the North American continent from east to west.
BFGoodrich soon identified another means of improving mobility by entering the rapidly expanding industry of aeronautics. This allowed the challenge-oriented brand to push the limits in new ways. The brand was involved in the 46.5 mph speed record set in 1909, at the first international air race held in Reims, on a Curtiss Aeroplane Corporation plane.
The 1920s presented the chance to conquer a challenge that was once thought unthinkable. In 1927, BFGoodrich provided the tyres for the Spirit of St. Louis, in which Charles Lindbergh made the first nonstop transatlantic flight in history.
- 1903: The first vehicle to cross the United States was fitted with BFGoodrich® tires.
- 1914 and 1915: BFGoodrich becomes the first tire manufacturer to win the Indianapolis 500 two years in a row.
- 1927: Aviator Charles Lindbergh makes the first non-stop transatlantic flight equipped with BFGoodrich® tires.
- 1977: The BFGoodrich® Radial All-Terrain T/A® tire sweeps both SCORE Baja 500 and Baja 1000.
- 1981: Columbia space shuttle is fitted with BFGoodrich® tires.
- 1984: BFGoodrich® tires and Mazda cruise to a Championship C2 class victory at 24 Hours of Le Mans.
- 2002 – 2007: BFGoodrich wins the Dakar Rally for the sixth consecutive year.
- 2006 – 2011: BFGoodrich drives to five consecutive World Rally Cross championships.
- 2017: BFGoodrich triumphs in their return to the Dakar Rally.
It’s more than just crossing the finish line first that excites us. BFGoodrich is driven to produce industry-first technology in all of its tire segments.
- 1947: First tubeless tire for American cars.
- 1965: First radial tire on the American market: the Lifesaver.
- 1967: First run-flat tire.
- 1972: Launches radial-ply touring tires in North America, while other manufacturers continue to develop “Bias-ply” tires.
- 1976: The world’s first all-terrain tire.
- 1999: The first tire with coloured read is introduced: The Scorcher T/A.
- 2002: The world’s first 24-inch 4X4 is released.
- 2016: Commemorates 40 years of SCORE BAJA Racing and the 40th anniversary of the Radial All-Terrain tire.

Destry Abbott is Coming
“Years ago I worked extremely hard to get EnduroCross back to Arizona. After an 8 year hiatus from the Arizona scene I finally convinced them to come back, and they did! A big part of that push was to get eyes on Destry Abbott and to support an Arizona Legend that was going through some tough times. The result was huge, by incorporating the EnduroCross event into the IOUE we were able to sell it out, and too my knowledge it was one of the first times they sold out a race. Now the Prescott event is one of the top in the country, and all I can say as a motorcycle fan, is AWESOME!” For the Second year in a row Destry is coming out the Expo, this year displaying his skills over obstacles and and on flat terrain. If you love riding, don’t miss watching one of the top riders in the World at the IOUE this December 6-8 at WestWorld in Scottsdale, Arizona.
