TEAM-HOOSIER 9-1 IN OUTLAWS SERIES

   

Team-HoosierLAKEVILLE, IN -- Hoosier tires continue to be the overwhelming "tire of choice" by teams competing in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series. And that choice has been paying off in a big way for many teams. After taking the top 11 in last Friday's opener at Devil's Bowl Speedway, Hoosier-shod teams finished 1-2-3-4 in the A-main on Saturday and repeated the feat Sunday at State Fair Speedway. In the ten Pennzoil World of Outlaws races contested in 2002, Team-Hoosier has nine wins, nine runner-up finishes, and ten third place finishes.  

This weekend's scenario is playing out just like the last one, with the series traveling to two tracks where Team-Hoosier was undefeated at last season. First, it's Houston Raceway Park for two nights of racing where Mark Kinser won once and Steve Kinser twice at the 4/10-mile oval on Hoosier rubber. Then, it's on to Mississippi's Pike County Speedway where Mark Kinser won the lone event there last season.

So, the future continues to look bright for teams riding on Hoosier tires in sprint racing's premier series. Currently, the top four drivers in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws point standings use Hoosier tires. Steve Kinser (1006) is in first place, followed by Danny Lasoski (1000), Mark Kinser (995), and Joey Saldana (951). In addition to the top four spots, eight of the top ten drivers in the point standings ride on Hoosier tires.  

Hoosier Open Wheel Dirt Product Manager Neil Cowman commented, "We are extremely pleased with the early season results of our sprint tire line in the World of Outlaws and in Pennsylvania where Hoosier-shod teams are undefeated in five events at Williams Grove and Lincoln Speedway." 

Cowman added, "We are continuing our efforts to maintain the level of success we have enjoyed the past couple of years by continuing our extensive testing and evaluation program." Cowman also confided, "Many people may not be aware of this, but our engineers have attended half of the World of Outlaws races this year--even while Team-Hoosier is winning 90% of the races in the series." 

Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. appreciates all the teams, drivers, and fans who have supported our efforts to provide the best sprint tires in the world. Hoosier tires are, and have always been, proudly "Made in the USA."
