Did You Know?

Facebook: Steve LaRoza & LaRoza Racing

Favorite social media outlet and why?
Instagram, because you don't have to really read everybody's drama to get to the stuff you want to see.

What's your daily driver?
2014 Ford F250 with the Continental's that came stock on the truck.

Favorite race and why?

Silver State 300.  It has a little bit of everything.  You are up in the tree’s, there’s some rally, some desert, a little road, just a lot of fun.

How do your General Grabbers help you during an off-road race?

General Grabbers, in my opinion are the most durable race tire going.  We can go 400-500 miles on the same set, and still have enough tread to go more.  When you aren’t changing flats you are making up time!

Best location for a weekend of off-roading and why?

I like Idaho.  You have the high desert, mountains, forests, etc.  And very few people!

What other adventure activities do you do outside of racing?

Mountain biking and motorcycling.  I started riding motorcycles before I rode bicycles. I will always have a real passion for motorcycles and still like to ride/race when I have the chance.  

Where's the coolest place you've ever gone on Grabbers?

Smiley Creek, Idaho.  You can’t beat the scenery and the openness. 

If you were going to do a weekend off-road trip, what five essential things would you bring with you?
1. Lighter - always need to build a fire
2. Spare Parts - you never know what will happen
3. Tools - need something to change the spare parts
4. Food - gotta eat!
5. Refreshments - for the evening or after putting on spare parts!
 
Top three road trip songs in your opinion?
1. Born to be wild (Stepenwolf)
2. Cowboy (Kid Rock)
3. Thunderstruck (ac/dc)

Best road trip you've ever taken?

Loreto, Baja Mexico with my wife for one week.  Scuba, off-roading, checking out missions, it was a lot of fun.

BONUS QUESTION: If you could go anywhere on your Grabbers, where would you go?

I would do a loop starting in Buenos Aires, Argentina going all the way south and then back up the coast of Chile to Antofagaste, Chile, over the Andes and back down to Buenos Aires.  That would be a great trip with some great things to see.
