Terry Casey (photo), Scott James, Mike Marlar, Kevin Claycomb, Billy Moyer and Earl Pearson, Jr. were big winners on Hoosier tires during a four-day stretch in which the Hoosier brand dominated late model racing.

Terry Casey used a 11.0/88.0-15 1300 (LR) and  29.0/11.0-15 1350 (RR) drive tire combination to nab the win in the Lucas Oil Series 50-lapper at Swainsboro (GA) Raceway on Thursday. Casey, who also set fast time of the night on Hoosiers, is currently leading both the rookie-of-the-year and the overall standings in the Lucas Oil Series. In fact, four of the top five atop the current Lucas Oil Series standings use the Hoosier brand.   

FRIDAY (4/4)
Scott James used Hoosier tires to win the 50-lap Lucas Oil race the following evening at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Georgia on Friday. James, using a 11/.0/88.0-15 1100 (LR) and 29.0/11.0-15 1300 (RR)
rear drive combination, took the lead on lap 21 en route to the win.  

Mike Marlar won the $5000-to-win, unsanctioned race at Ponderosa (KY) Speedway on Hoosier tires on Saturday. 

In the Spring 50 at Florence (KY) Speedway, Kevin Claycomb took the win on Hoosier tires. It was only Claycomb's third race coming out of a two-year retirement. 

In the World of Outlaws Late Model Series, Billy Moyer won the $20,000 Illini 100 at Farmer City Raceway on Hoosier tires. The Batesville, Arkansas driver used Hoosier LM30 tires on all four corners to capture his tenth win in his last 14 races. It was also Moyer's second straight WoOLMS triumph.  

SUNDAY (4/6)
The spectacular weekend was capped off when Earl Pearson, Jr. made a last-lap pass to win the $10,000 Lucas Oil race at the Golden Isles Speedway in Brunswick, GA. Pearson used a quartet of Hoosier LM20's to capture the exciting win. 

Hoosier's Late Model Dirt Product Manager Shanon Rush commented after the weekend of racing, "We have been very pleased with the early season success with such a wide variety of compounds."

Rush added, "Our new C4000 left and right rears have been performing well throughout the country."
