Hoosier Road Racing Manager Bruce Foss addresses the crowd at PRIOrlando, FL (December 7, 2007) -- It was announced today that the F2000 Championship Series Presented by Hoosier Racing Tire will host a 14-race season. 
The F2000 Championship Series Presented by Hoosier Racing Tire is based on the concepts of great tracks, good seat time, affordability, and fantastic competition.  With a mix of seasoned veterans and young hot shoes; it provides some of the best open wheel racing in North America, bringing 40 plus cars to the grid in every event.  It is sanctioned by SCCA Pro Racing; running with great events such as Champ Car, the American LeMans and Formula Drift, along with select NASA, Historic and SCCA events.
Al Guibord Jr., one of the F2000 principals, and Bruce Foss product manager at Hoosier Racing Tire took the stage for a special announcement.  Al said “In three short years we have had the great fortune of growing this series to the largest open wheel formula car series in the country.  Today it is with great pleasure we are able to announce Hoosier Tire has stepped up, not only to supply us our racing tires for the next three years, but also to be the presenting sponsor.  Looking forward to this sponsorship, and having the largest formula car series in the United States, partnered up with the largest race car tire manufacturer in the country, is something we are really excited about.” 
Bruce Foss commented “We’re excited about the upcoming three-year agreement with F2000 Championship series. Hoosier has watched the series grow and excel, and we are proud to be a part of it.  As stated in an earlier release, it is my feeling we belong in this series/family; we know everybody here.  We feel this is going to be a great series for us; we had relationships with most of the teams and drivers prior to this announcement.  Hoosier originated with the USAC Formula 2000 back in the 90’s, which proved to be a lot of fun and a lot of success, and we’re looking forward to more of the same.  Hoosier is going to go with a radial tire, per request.  We are excited about delivering the wear and consistency the series is looking for.  It is Hoosier’s objective to present some upgrades in the service areas, as well as, working on a program where a lot of information can be found online, such as technical data on the tires.  You will be able to go online and pre-order tires for events.  We are looking forward to growing with the F2000 Championship Series Presented by Hoosier Racing Tire.”

The series in the first two years has produced some great racing and we feel 2008 is going to even step it up a notch with our relationship with Hoosier.  Increased fields right now looks like we’re at the 45 car range for every event, providing some pretty fierce competition.”
