HOOSIER HAPPENINGS

TEAM-HOOSIER RIDING HIGH 
ON 28-RACE WIN STREAK ENTERING KNOXVILLE 

8-07-2002

LAKEVILLE, IN -- Yet another Pennzoil World of Outlaws weekend is in the books with Hoosier tires racking up more wins than any other tire manufacturer in the world. Team-Hoosier enters the 4-day Knoxville Nationals on a 28-race win streak after completing an undefeated month of July in sprint racing's premier series. 

The pressure continues to be placed squarely on the other tire brands as Hoosier continues to roll out even more weapons in their already powerful arsenal. After successful laboratory and track testing, the new RD15 compound burst onto the sprint racing scene winning five of the last six races in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series and will most likely play a roll in the competition at Knoxville as well.

Team-Hoosier has now amassed a phenomenal 59-4 record in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series with 28 consecutive wins. On top of that, they have finished 1-2-3 in 46 of the 63 races contested to date in the series. 

Add to that, the perfect 13-0 record in the Gumout Series, the 27-6 record in the All Star Sprint Series, and the 64-0 record in Central Pennsylvania and the accomplishment of Hoosier and the many teams riding on the product and you get a glimpse of the success the Hoosier brand has enjoyed in 2002. Overall, that is 163 wins in 173 races.      

The Outlaws have raced at Knoxville Raceway three times before in 2002, with three different winners. The one commonality was all three rode on Hoosier tires. Steve Kinser won in late April, while Joey Saldana and Danny Lasoski were winners in late June.

Currently, the top seven drivers in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series ride on Hoosier tires and 11 of the top 12 drivers overall. Steve Kinser, who gave the Hoosier brand their first-ever Outlaws championship in 2000, is in first place in the standings followed by Joey Saldana, Craig Dollansky, Danny Lasoski, Mark Kinser, Tim Shaffer and Donny Schatz in second through seventh, respectively. 

Having just completed yet another successful tire test this past Monday, Hoosier Open Wheel Dirt Product Manager Neil Cowman commented before leaving for Knoxville, "This will be a very good test for us. With four nights of competition, the Hoosier product line should be put to the test." Cowman added, "The new RD15 compound could once again be a factor. Todd Seitz (Hoosier's Track Service Manager for the Outlaws Series) returned to the warehouse after the Eldora swing to have the Outlaws trailer reloaded to have plenty of tires on hand for the entire Knoxville event."
