Having won six of the last eight Pennzoil World of Outlaws events, Team Hoosier now travels to Lowe's Motor Speedway for two night's of competition and Friday's nationally televised preliminary race which will be rebroadcast Sunday on TNN at noon eastern. 


HOOSIER RACING TIRE CORP.LAKEVILLE, IN (October 4) -- With the Pennzoil World of Outlaws season entering it's final month of racing, we report Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. has won more races than all other tire manufacturers combined. Team Hoosier has captured 60% of the checkered flags, winning 53 of the 89 events contested. And as good as that is, Team Hoosier has finished runner-up, an eye-popping, 75% of the time in sprint racing's elite series. CLICK HERE to get a graphic representation of Team Hoosier's podium domination in the 2001 Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series. 

In the last eight events, Mark Kinser won four straight races followed by Danny Wood taking two wins in a row. Not so surprising, the two events they did not win, Team Hoosier finished runner-up in both events. 

While we all know, "past results do not guarantee future returns", you cannot argue Hoosier has been the dominant tire on the track. With the introduction of the new Hoosier RD12 compound, those "future returns" could be pretty good.

The last time the Outlaws were at Lowe's Motor Speedway, Team Hoosier finished first and second on both nights of racing back in May. Danny Lasoski and Steve Kinser finished 1-2 in the preliminary, while Mark Kinser and Steve Kinser finished 1-2 in the finale. Although this is impressive, add them to the 40 other nights when Team Hoosier recorded a 1-2 finish and you get an idea of just how well USA-made Hoosier tires have performed over the arduous schedule.

QUOTES: Hoosier sprint tire product manager, Neil Cowman, commented ahead of Friday and Saturday's races, "Last week I traveled to Pennsylvania to watch the new Hoosier RD12 compound in action where I received very positive feedback and the tires performed consistent with our earlier testing." Cowman continued, "This weekend, Jon Huffman, (Hoosier's compound engineer who developed the RD12) will be in North Carolina to gather more data and monitor his new creation."   


Teams using Hoosier tires still hold the top three positions in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws point standings, as Mark Kinser, with 8967 points, leads Danny Lasoski by 51 points heading into Friday's race. Steve Kinser is solidly in third place with 8665 points. Craig Dollansky is currently in fifth place, only 28 points out of fourth for Team Hoosier. 

TNN will tape Friday's preliminary program of the Odoban Outlaws Championship and telecast the race from noon to 2 p.m. eastern time.

Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. would like to thank all the World of Outlaws teams, owners, drivers and fans for making the 2001 season even more successful than last year.
