The 2007 World Off-Road Championship Series concluded with round ten at Taft, California, in much the same manner as the rest of the season: with an ITP-equipped quad in winner's circle. Defending series champion Doug Eichner rode a Duncan Racing Polaris Outlaw 525 to his second overall victory in a row, and his third of the season. These performances, as well as his year-long consistency (eight podium appearances in ten events, with only one DNF), propelled the El Cajon, California, native to second overall in the final 2007 WORCS Pro class point standings.

Taking overall championship honors, however, was Moapa, Nevada's, Josh Frederick, who had clinched the number one plate at the previous round at Pismo Beach, California. Frederick's domination of the series through the first seven events - with six wins, including an historic debut victory for the Can-Am DS 450 - allowed the Team Epic Racing rider to overcome some late-season problems and still claim the title.

All three riders spent virtually the entire 2007 WORCS season on front and rear ITP Holeshot GNCC tires, which provided them with outstanding handling, traction and durability throughout the year. From January to November, this series ran on almost every conceivable terrain - from dry, rocky, wide-open desert settings to tight, muddy woods and even loose sand dunes - and in every case these tires performed with flying colors. In all these conditions, the Holeshot GNCCs reliably delivered an ideal balance of acceleration, braking and cornering performance, as well as a light feel and smooth ride, which reduces rider fatigue during long stints in the saddle.
ITP Holeshot GNCC tires are available in 21x7-10 and 22x7-10 sizes for the front, and 20x10-9 and 21x11-9 for the rear. All carry a tough 6-ply rating and utilize a long-wearing rubber compound, yet remain amazingly light in weight.
