Getting Behind the Wheel

From off-roading in the mountains to racing on the race track, I was able to put Falken's brand to the test.

My day started in a lifted Jeep Rubicon on WILKPEAK M/T tires. Once we reached the top of the mountain, we kicked the Jeeps into 4-wheel-drive. These tires generated ultimate traction in the most challenging off-road environments; they effortlessly drove through sand, dirt, gravel, rock, and shallow holes due to Falken's advanced technology. The views were absolutely breathtaking and the weather was beautiful. 

During the second half of the day, we made our way to the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, a longtime host of multiple NASCAR events. This is the part of the day when they let us get behind the wheel and experience Falken street products vs. key competitors. From 0 to 60mph break tests to obstacles to test their excellent grip and outstanding performance, it was definitely an adrenaline rush.

After this trip, I’m excited to make off-roading a new hobby of mine, but for other peoples safety, racing should not. Unfortunately, I’m to blame for a few cone casualties…

Bleeding the Falken Brand

One day down and one day to go. 

Today I toured Falken's headquarters in Ontario; I was able to see the in's and out's of this corporation, and boy I was impressed. Not only by the brand their advertising but also by the employees their recruiting.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by countless employees that live, breath, and bleed Falken. It's great to see a corporation that invests in not only their consumers but also the employees that work hard to create the brand. 

This passion was shown throughout the day while they taught us the history of their brand, the tires that they carry, and the programs that they offer. They also had an impressive snack/drink selection that I, unfortunately, returned to far too often. Pringles are a weakness of mine.

At headquarters, they have completely renovated the second floor of their building for Falken Academy visitors. As I walked through this room, I suddenly forget that other brands of tires existed; from marketing merchandise to race track memorabilia, I felt like we were at a training seminar, on steroids. 

Now that they have educated me about their brand, I'm ready to put their tires to the test. Hopefully, I do a lot better than I did on their race car simulator! 

Wish me luck.

Jenn's Airport Experiences

Traveling is a fun experience, but you always have to be ready for the curveballs along the way. No airport is ever the same nor is any airport experience. 

What was supposed to be a 6:00 am flight turned into a 4:00 pm flight. I was upset that my trip delayed, but my body and mind were happy for the extra hours of sleep. 

So here I am, entering the airport, one I've been to many times before, full of excitement and ready to experience Falken Academy, even though all my snacks got taken away at security...

Snackless and antsy, I sit waiting for my flight, looking through a sneak peek gallery of photos I received from Falken a few days ago. From pictures of their Head Quarters to decked out Jeeps with their WILDPEAK lines, I can tell it's going to be an exciting next couple of days.

Who is Jenn and why is she going to Hollywood? 

Hello Barron Tire dealers,

Let me start by introducing myself, my name is Jenn, and I am the Marketing Coordinator here at Barron Tire. The purpose of my blogs is to keep you guys updated on what's going on in the tire world; from new products we carry to sneak peeks on vendor events, I'm the girl for you. 

Now that I address who I am, I will explain why I am going to Hollywood. 

In less than a week, I will go from the sandy East Coast of North Florida all the way over to the rocky West coast of California to give you all a sneak peek of what Falken Academy is all about.

Falken Academy is holding an all-new Q1 program that gives you a hands-on opportunity to put Falken Tires to the test both on the track and in the dirt. This promotion allows new and existing Fanatic Dealers to win a trip to California for a two-day training event, all you need to do is achieve their "Fan Lite" level, and you will qualify to attend. 

I will be documenting my whole trip, from test driving at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, to getting down and dirty in the mountains to put their WILDPEAK line to the test. My mission is to give you an in-depth look at the latest and greatest that Falken has to offer because this is a trip you do not want to miss. 

See ya in Cali
