Hoosier will specifically design, manufacture and distribute hard compound tires for I.M.C.A.'s Modified, Late Model, Sprint Car, Stock Car and Northern and Southern SportMod classes. The tires will be made available for competition from any Hoosier distributor throughout North America beginning January 1, 2006.

"Hoosier has proven to us that they can meet the needs of this organization and our racers," I.M.C.A. President Kathy Root emphasized, in making the joint announcement with Hoosier. "They share our philosophy of cost containment and affordability for weekly racers. The issues of cost and durability are extremely important to us, as they are to track promoters and drivers."

"We're proud to become the official tire supplier of I.M.C.A.," said Dennis Sherman, vice president of marketing for Hoosier. "We also recognize the importance of grassroots racing. Many of the stars of tomorrow develop their careers and skills in I.M.C.A. They are able to do that because I.M.C.A. has built a tradition surrounding affordable, exciting racing."

Competitors will be able to utilize both Hoosier or American Racer tires during the 2006 season. Details regarding the combination of the tires will be released at a later date.

Hoosier tires have played an integral role in the new Jeff's Performance Southern SportMod division this season.

"Hoosier's network of distributors is up to the task of handling the needs of the I.M.C.A. racers," said Brett Root, vice president of operations for the sanctioning body. "We have visited their plant in Indiana and are pleased with the quality of tire they manufacture. I'm confident that our drivers will agree with that assessment."

"We plan to announce more specific details as we continue to move forward with Hoosier and we intend to have these tires displayed at the I.M.C.A. Speedway Motors Super Nationals and at the trade shows we attend during the off season," Root added.

No change is in store for sanctioned Hobby Stocks which will remain on OEM tires.
