HOOSIER HAPPENINGS

TEAM-HOOSIER AMASSES 35-2 MARK

4-12-2002

LAKEVILLE, IN -- Teams using Hoosier tires in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series continue to reap the rewards of riding atop the #1 tire in sprint racing. This past weekend, Brad Furr led an "all-Hoosier" sweep of the top eight in the Southern Bleacher Classic as Team-Hoosier captured 15 of the top 16 spots in the 30-lap feature. The series now moves to Eldora Speedway where Team-Hoosier won five of the six races contested last season.

Mark Kinser and Andy Hillenburg each won twice at Eldora in 2001, with Steve Kinser also picking up a win on the Hoosier-friendly 1/2-mile. In fact, the next four stops on the Outlaws trail are all tracks where Hoosier tires dominated last season. Team-Hoosier won 11 of 12 races contested at Talladega, Kansas City, Knoxville and Greenwood, Nebraska in 2001.

Continuing the trend after 16 races this season, Team-Hoosier has amassed a stellar 14-2 mark against all other tire manufacturers in sprint racing's premier series. On top of that accomplishment, Hoosier remains undefeated in Pennsylvania at Lincoln, Williams Grove and Port Royal Speedways where Team-Hoosier has compiled a sparkling 11-0 record. Combine that with their 9-0 record in the All Star Circuit of Champions and sweep of the top eight positions in the Gumout opener in Texas and the mark reaches a staggering 35-2 for teams opting to ride on Hoosier tires.

Given a winning percentage of 95%, one might think that Hoosier Tire would be tempted to sit back and enjoy the view from the top. But that's not the Hoosier way. Hoosier had a compound engineer attend last weekend's Southern Bleacher Classic to answer questions and evaluate tire performance, and this weekend Hoosier Open Wheel Dirt Product Manager Neil Cowman will be in attendance at Eldora. 

Cowman commented, "Although we are pleased with our performance thus far, our entire organization remains committed to continuing to provide the #1 tire in sprint racing."
