Wisconsin's Kim Mock, the 1994 IRA champion, took top honors winning the 2001 championship in the closest points battle in series history. Mock actually entered the series' final event third in points, 17 markers out of first place. But Mock had something the other two drivers in front of him did not. Mock was riding on USA-made Hoosier tires.

When the IRA's season ending Frank Filskov Memorial race ended, Kim Mock not only won the race, he had won the championship as well. 

Hoosier sprint tire product manager commented, "Add Kim's championship to the titles won in the World of Outlaws Series, the Gumout Series, and the All Star Sprints Series, and there is no question Team-Hoosier had an amazing 2001 season."

Cowman added, "Everything had to go right that night for Kim to win the championship, and you know what, it did. The points leader entering the race broke, finishing 20th, and Kim erased the nine point difference between himself and the runner-up man, winning the title by 11 points." 

The IRA banquet was attended by Hoosier Tire Midwest's Chad Anderson and reported in addition to Mock, who finished the season in first place tied with the most IRA features wins (4), three other drivers finished in the top ten on the Hoosier brand. Scott Neitzel finished in fourth place, while John Haeni finished fifth and Howie Gleason ninth on Hoosier tires. 

Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. congratulates Kim Mock on winning the 2001 Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series championship. We would also like to thank all the competitors who trusted Hoosier tires during the past year's competition.
