6-year-old Isaac Abenroth continues to collect more checkered flags riding on Hoosier tires.EVERETT, WA (July 2, 2006) -- Six-year-old Isaac (Ike) Abenroth notched another win Sunday driving the Frontier Chevrolet Jr. Stock Deco car mounted on Hoosier tires. Despite qualifying second fastest, Ike was forced to start the A-main from the rear of the field for arriving late for the feature race due to some last minute adjustments. The set back did not deter the youngster who won the 25-lap race by nearly a half a lap when the checkered flag finally waved.

Ike's time in qualifying was 6.39 seconds around the 1/20-mile track in sweltering 90 degree heat. The time was good enough to put him second in the starting grid, but contact with another competitor during warm-ups forced the young hot shoe to the pits for last minute repairs.

Once the car was fixed, Ike was back on the track--albeit starting from the rear of the field as a result of his tardiness to the starting line due to the length of time it took to make the necessary repairs.

After the penalty, the race began with Ike forced to follow slower cars while looking for ways around them in the short 25-lap race. Ironically, the extreme heat worked to Ike's advantage since he was the only competitor riding on the Hoosier tire brand which got better as the race progressed. Through it all, he fought his way into the lead going on to win by a half lap in front of his cheering fans.

Ike's proud father Phil has been a strong supporter of the Hoosier brand since its recent entrance in the quarter midget market. The family hails from Lake Stevens, Washington uses tires provided by Westman Farrier Service.

Phil commented after the exciting win, "Everyone's talking about the Hoosiers now."
