HOOSIER TIRE UNDEFEATED IN JULY
ADDS NEW RD15 COMPOUND TO ARSENAL

8-02-2002

LAKEVILLE, IN -- Although the Hoosier tire brand is winning better than nine out of every ten races in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series, testing continues with the goal of bolstering an already formidable tire line. Hoosier Tire introduced the RD15 compound at the Summer Nationals at Williams Grove last weekend and the new compound was in the winner's circle all three nights. Team-Hoosier, coming off an undefeated month of July, looks to build on an already sparkling 58-4 record in sprint racing's elite series heading into "The Night Before The Big One" this Friday at Eldora Speedway.

On the heals of their 45th 1-2-3 finish of the season this past Wednesday at Sharon Speedway, Team-Hoosier heads to the "Big-E" on a record setting 27-race win streak. At Sharon Speedway, Joey Saldana led every lap of the 30-lap feature using an RD15 right rear tire en route to the win. The new compound has now won four of the last five races in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws.

Team-Hoosier is gunning for its third consecutive Pennzoil World of Outlaws championship after Steve Kinser gave the Hoosier organization its first-ever series championship in 2000 and Danny Lasoski followed that historical feat up by winning the championship last season on Hoosier tires. 

Hopes for a three-peat are looking good as nine of the top ten drivers in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series currently ride on the Hoosier brand. Steve Kinser sits atop the standings followed by Danny Lasoski, Joey Saldana, Craig Dollansky, Mark Kinser, Tim Shaffer, and Donny Schatz in second through seventh, respectively. Brad Furr is in ninth place and Randy Hannagan in tenth for Team-Hoosier.

The Hoosier brand also boasts an undefeated record in the Gumout Series at 11-0 in stand-alone events and enjoys a phenomenal 61-0 record in 410 competition in Central Pennsylvania and a 26-6 record in the All Star Sprint Series.

Hoosier Open Wheel Dirt Product Manager Neil Cowman will be at Eldora to monitor the new RD15 compound and had this to say before departing, "The new RD15 compound has really had an impact--winning four of the last five Outlaw races." Cowman added, "I'm really looking forward to seeing the RD15 under race conditions at Eldora where we will have plenty of tires on hand for all the competitors who might want to try the new compound."
