KART & QUARTER MIDGET TIRE UPDATE
  1-19-05
Hoosier Quarter Midget TireLAKEVILLE, IN (January 19) -- Work continues on the development of Hoosier's new 5-6" tire lines. To date, our focus has been on introducing a successful line of quarter midget tires. Early results have been exceptional in the quarter midget line with reports of success on karts as well.

Neil Cowman, Hoosier's Quarter Midget Product Manager commented, "I have been getting a number of e-mails asking about Hoosier kart tires. Although we haven't done any on-track tire testing for karting, we continue to get reports of competitors using our 35.0/7.1-6 quarter midget tire as their right side tire in dirt karting venues with success." 

Currently, Hoosier has developed three left side and two right side sizes along with seven different compounds (four dirt and three asphalt) for quarter midget racing (see chart below). The next development will be in dirt karting where we plan on introducing a wider right side tire (35.0/8.1-6) and a wider left side tire (33.0/5.5-6). Once the dirt kart line has been developed we will commence work on the asphalt line for karting.

The new Hoosier quarter midget tire line had eye-popping results January 1st in Columbus (OH) with Hoosier tires claiming first place in three divisions (JR Honda using a Hoosier D20 and Sr. Honda and Lite Mod using a Hoosier D30), while claiming second and third place in the Heavy A class using a Hoosier A50.

Please continue to check our website (www.hoosiertire.com) periodically for product updates. You can check out the F.A.Q. section of the Kart and Quarter Midget lines to see a comparison of Hoosier compounds to that of the competition. 

Currently, the quarter midget development is under the direction of Neil Cowman who has successful guided the Hoosier sprint tire line to five successive championships in the World of Outlaws, but Hoosier is in search of a full-time product manager for the fledgling kart and quarter midget lines. If interested, forward your resume to Paul Menting (pmenting@hoosiertire.com) at Hoosier.
