IN October 9, 2006) Hoosier Racing Tire is pleased to announce the winner
of the 2006 framed autograph Hoosier Pacesetter poster. Paul Gilhousen from
Lockport, NY is this year’s lucky winner. A 20” x 14” framed poster will
be sent to Paul. Hoosier Racing Tire, Grand American, Speed Channel and The
Print Network would like to congratulate Paul and thank him for supporting the
Rolex presented by Crown Royal Special Reserve series. Paul’s name was drawn
from a group of hundreds of names, all of whom had entered to win the poster at
a Rolex event during the 2006 season.
Hoosier Racing Tire’s Hoosier Pacesetter program was introduced in 2004.
The Hoosier PaceSetter Program was designed to reward teams for their
professionalism and commitment to the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series
presented by Crown Royal Special Reserve. This unique incentive program
annually opened to the top 20 teams from the previous season’s Rolex Series
point standings that participated in every race.
Qualified teams are eligible for several benefits such as priority rig
parking, preferred early tech inspection, an extra parking pass and priority
consideration for series promotions.
In order to qualify for the benefits and bonuses, teams and their drivers
must participate and attend on-time, a variety of series promotional and
competition-related activities. To be eligible to participate in 2007, 100%
attendance is required this season.
