is never an easy decision to end a relationship like this,” stated Hoosier
Product Manager Shanon Rush. “Although we were close to coming to an

sponsorship was reaching our dedicated Hoosier customers. It's time to take
our support back to those who support Hoosier Tires.”

reiterated Mr. Rush. “It is our intent to continue open competition tire
development, race track and driver support, and support for organizations that
support Hoosier Tire and our Distributors. We wish TSMA and those drivers who
support it good luck and apologize that we were unable to reach an agreement
