I 5: A . > ::;: ~ w Z W ...J U >U gO-degree temperatures. Choking red Georgia dust. Bone-jarring jumps and hairraising corners. Sixty minutes of fierce competition by a packed field of the finest riders in the East. When the dust settled, Sonny DeFeo of Port Washington, New York had the best point total for the three heats-two of them run on Goodyear's new Eagle MX. After all, a competition tire is supposed to win. So we build the Eagle MX with a super-tough rubber compound that has exceptional tear resistance-to keep a biting edge on the lugs. ' W e make the speciallydesigned body with 4 plies of nylon cord -cord we toughen by Goodyear's unique Triple-Tem- pering process. For the strength to take the hardest jumps. . And we wrap those deep, sturdy "MotoGrip" lugs right around the tire's shoulder, so they'll hold tight on turns, and dig you out fast. Their special contours and spacing give excellent clean-out when the course is muddy. Beside DeFeo's win, other riders mounted on the Eagle MX ran 4th, ' 5th, 6th and 7th in the 250cc class, and 2nd and 4th in the Open class. Not bad for a brand"new tire. The Eagle MX is available in both 400-18 and 450-18 sizes. See it soon at any Goodyear Motorcycle Tire Dealer and start riding a winner. Goodyear Cycle Tire Department, P. O.
