IN (January 15) -- Music City Motorplex
and Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. have reached an agreement making Hoosier
the exclusive tire used in competition among the top four divisions at
the historic Nashville, Tennessee racing facility. Jack Deery, General
Manager of Music City Motorplex and Terry Newton, Hoosier's Oval Track
Asphalt Product Manager are pleased to finalize the agreement after
several months of negotiations and extensive testing.
Hoosier will provide
a 10.0/27.0-15 *1070* tire for the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Late
Model and Super Truck divisions, while the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series
Sportsman division and the Music City
Motorplex Super Stock division will use the 27.0/8.0-15 Comanche tire. Testing at the track has shown these Hoosier specs will offer solid
performance, repeatability and
durability for a high level of competition on a weekly basis.
One of the most
important aspects of this new tire program is the price.
For the first time in almost seven years, tire prices will be
reduced for competitors. These
tires will cost the teams just under $100 each, including mounting and
taxes. This is more than a $130
savings from last season. The
new tire rules for regular events will also assist in the money
savings as the Late Models and Super Trucks will be limited to two new
tires per night, while the Sportsman and Superstocks will be limited
to one new tire per night.
extremely pleased to be back at the famed Nashville facility,"
stated Newton. "Jack
(Deery) and his entire management team are very innovative and forward
thinking." Newton added,
"They are taking the right steps toward making the facility one
of the best weekly tracks in the country."
"The Music City
Motorplex is excited to have Hoosier join us for what we are expecting
to be a pivotal year at this legendary track," stated Deery.
"The fact that we will be able to offer a competitive tire
at a better price will help everyone," added Deery.
