The ProSolo event had drivers competing in head-to-head competition on side-by-side, mirror-image autocross courses. When it was all over, one tire brand stood above the rest--Hoosier. 

In the 22 classes in which Hoosier tires are used, 152 of 213 drivers (71%) opted to run on Hoosier tires. Even more startling was the number of class winners riding on Hoosiers. In the end, the purple tire brand was used by 20 of 22 ProSolo class champions. 

The icing-on-the-cake, however, came the Hawk Super Challenge which pits the top drivers in each class in head-to-head competition to determine an overall winner. The overall SCCA ProSolo National Champion was Mike "Junior" Johnson (photo). Johnson took the win while competing on Hoosier racing tires. 

The final tally had Team Hoosier capturing 51 of the 66 podium spots including 20 first place finishes, 17 second place finishes and 14 third place finishes. Hoosier-shod drivers also collected 19 (of 22) 4th place finishes and 18 (of 22) 5th place finishes.
