Test Romp: Off-Road Star Ricky Johnson to Run Mind-Blowing Airwave Goggle at Red Bull Frozen Rush, R&D for Motorsports
Ricky Johnson is used to blazing trails. Smashing into fame with AMA national championships and some epic seasons in the Outdoors and Supercross, the converted off-road star is set to plow his way into history even more by mashing an off-road vehicle in freezing temperatures at Red Bull Frozen Rush this coming weekend. Armed and dangerous with two sets of Oakley’s mind-blowing Airwave™ GPS enabled goggle, the long-time ripper will conduct research and development, real time, for the goggle’s future evolution into other potential projects and usage.
The infamous Dakar Rally’s monstrous jaws are chomping for victims. And Oakley’s team rippers have been more than ready to charge at the premiere raid event – taking the truly international stage in efforts to trample adversaries in the treacherous Peruvian desert race. So far, they haven’t disappointed. Raging back into action after missing last year’s race, Oakley’s past champ, Carlos Sainz, emphatically claimed the first stage around Pisco this past Saturday. The result tallied his 25th Dakar stage all-time.
The desert takes no prisoners. And there are few races that smear that fact in your face than the Oakley-backed General Tire Mint 400 Off-Road Championship. Get ready to flick on the tube, because this beast of a contest is dropping in on SPEED TV for the first time on Jan. 5 (2 p.m. Eastern).
