Team-HoosierLAKEVILLE, IN -- East Coast, West Coast, the one common theme over the weekend on sprint tracks across the country was Hoosier tires. While Team-Hoosier was dominating action on the West Coast in the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series, sprint teams in Pennsylvania were doing their part to keep the purple banner in the forefront of sprint racing. On Saturday at Lincoln Speedway, Keith Kauffman was the first of four Hoosier-shod drivers to cross the finish line in the 30-lap A-feature. On Sunday, Greg Hodnett led an even larger purple parade to the finish line at Williams Grove Speedway. Hodnett was the first of 11 drivers to cross the line on Hoosier tires before the first competing tire crossed the stripe.
