MI (September 17, 2011) -- Andy Bozell set a new 3/8-mile world record Saturday
posting a lap of 10.020 seconds on Hoosier racing tires. (Watch
The 12-time Kalamazoo Speedway
track champion broke his own record time of 10.038 seconds set last year.
The surprising part wasn't that
Bozell set the new record, it was that he did so on 10" wide tires. The
previous record time was set using a 17" wide right rear tire.
After setting the world record
mark, Bozell went on to win the 75-lap Call of the Wild feature race
ahead of his son Phil.
Mark Shook finished in third
place preventing a sweep of the top three spots by the Bozell family in the
night's Outlaw V-8's class. Jeff Bozell finished in fourth followed by Mike
Shewchuk in fifth.
Congratulations to Andy Bozell
on his record-setting run on Hoosier racing tires.
