stalwart Tyler Robinson (at left) was also victorious in the Jr Honda
A Main, but his victory in the Big Show was the least of his
suffering through a DNF in his heat race, the Beavercreek, OH eight-year-old
transferred from the E Main all the way through to the A Main--winning
every race. Crew chief Marvin Smith,
grandfather and and former two-time ARCA Re/Max Champion crew chief
commented later, "Those tires ran six races and never gave
up!" Robinson also
nearly won the Junior Stock class as well.
He led most of the more powerful division's A Main before being
passed on a restart. The
youngster closed on the eventual winner in the few remaining circuits
of that event, but was forced to settle for the runner-up spot.
JR Roahrig is well known for his exploits in the
Sunoco Super Series stock car organization, but on New Years Day 2005
it was his son Tyler that
carried the checkered flag. The
third generation Roahrig decimated the Senior Honda field with the
upstart Hoosier quarter midget tires at the Ohio Indoor event.
A South Bend, IN resident, and life long Hoosier family, it was
only natural that the youngster would follow in his grandpa and dad's
Hoosier quarter midget tires are available at the
Ohio facility from well known quarter midget dealer Larry Ebert.
Ebert's Beechwold Automotive has become synonymous with the
development of the Hoosier small tire line.
He, and Ohio Distributor, Jeff Nuckles have worked tirelessly
in the improvement of the product. These
advances have included the recent acquisition of a new mold for the
quarter midget right rear tire. The
mold, used in the manufacture of the 35.0/7.1-6 tire, has taken the
brand to the next level.
One recent convert is Mario Diano--a legendary
racing name in the Canton, OH area. Diano bolted the brand new A-50
compound right rear tire on his son Nick's car.
The 11-year-old races in the Heavy AA division and led the
January 1st A Main at the Columbus Indoor event until an accident
relegated him to a third place finish behind fellow Hoosier-shod
driver, Tom Tolbert of Columbus, OH in the 25-lap main event.
Another notable performance was also turned in by
Jesse Fitz--son of prominent
quarter midget constructor Tom Fitz. The 15-year-old Crystal Spring,
PA pilot drove his Bullrider race car to a second place finish in the
Heavy B class in the first event of 2005. Once again the new Hoosier
A-50 tire carried Fitz to his best finish this indoor season.
