HOOSIER HAPPENINGS - Vol. 12
Team-Hoosier is on a HOT streak in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series, as teams using USA-made Hoosier tires have won the last seven races, including 13 wins in the last 16 events heading into the final two races of the season at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this Friday and Saturday, November 2-3.

HOOSIER RACING TIRE CORP.LAKEVILLE, IN (November 1) -- The Pennzoil World of Outlaws season will complete it's arduous 10-month schedule this weekend in Las Vegas, as Team-Hoosier seeks to punctuate their most successful season ever by running their end-of-season HOT streak to nine wins in a row. 

Coming off two of the most dominating performances of the season in which Hoosier-shod drivers swept the top seven places at Texas and Oklahoma, including capturing nine of the top ten in both events, momentum is definitely on the side of teams using the Hoosier brand.

The Texas and Oklahoma results were eerily similar in that, teams using Hoosier tires posted the three fastest qualifying times in both events, won all seven O'Reilly Auto Parts heat races contested, won both Channellock Dash races, and capped both nights by finishing 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 in the A-main, as nine of the top ten finishers were members of Team-Hoosier. Joey Saldana won in Texas while Danny Wood won in Oklahoma, as both drivers were using a Hoosier RD12(left)/D12(right) combination.

But that does not tell the whole story, as the last four Outlaws races have ended in a 1-2-3 Hoosier finish. All told, Team-Hoosier has recorded 32, 1-2-3 sweeps during 97 nights of competition. Hoosier also currently has a seven race win streak entering the Season Finale in Las Vegas, as well as, winning 13 of the last 16 races.

If that is not convincing enough, how about this, the last time the circuit was in Las Vegas in March for three nights of racing, all three nights were won by drivers on the Hoosier brand. Andy Hillenburg won the opener, while Danny Wood won the second night, leading a Hoosier 1-2-3 finish. Danny Lasoski captured the win on the final night and also led a 1-2-3 Hoosier finish at the stripe.  

Highlighting this year's Team-Hoosier performance, Hoosier tires have been on 60 of the 97 Pennzoil World of Outlaws winners, 74 of the runner-up finishers, and 61 of the third place finishers. 

QUOTES: Hoosier sprint tire product manager, Neil Cowman, who will be in attendance at the final two races in Las Vegas commented, "We could not be more pleased heading to Las Vegas. Team-Hoosier has won the last seven events, 13 of the last 16, amassing 60 wins in 97 events, posting 32, 1-2-3 finishes, as Danny (Lasoski), Mark (Kinser), Steve (Kinser) and Craig (Dollansky), stand atop the series points chase using Hoosier tires, I guess you could say, it's been a great year for Hoosier."

ADDITIONAL NOTES: 

Danny Lasoski holds a slim 21 point advantage over Mark Kinser heading into the weekend in which the 2001 Pennzoil World of Outlaws champion will be crowned. 

The Season Finale in Las Vegas will be broadcast live on SprintCarNet.com beginning at 11 PM eastern time on Friday and Saturday. TNN is scheduled to tape Friday's race and air the program on Sunday, November 4, at 3 PM 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 so successful.
