FIND SUCCESS COAST-TO-COAST
ON NEW QUARTER MIDGET TIRES
IN (June 6, 2007) -- The 2007 Quarter Midget season is now in full swing and so
are Hoosier's newly released Quarter Midget tires. This past off-season,
Hoosier continued to develop the only tires specifically designed for today's
youngest champions. The success of this development work was evident recently
as Hoosier's "A" series QM tires captured several victories across
Abenroth Wins Jr. Honda at Yakima
WA (April 28-29, 2007) -- Quarter Midgets of America's Region 9, which consists
of Idaho, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia held their first regional
race at Racing Rascals QMA in Yakima, WA. There were 133 cars on hand with each
driver hoping to start out the season on a good note.
Abenroth, driving in both the Jr. Honda and Jr. Stock classes, was the only
driver sporting Hoosier's new A30A tires. Isaac finished 2nd in his Frontier
Chevrolet Jr. Stocker heat race and had a respectable performance in the
A-Main. Isaac was leading the entire race until he spun out and had to start at
the rear of the field. Young Ike's determination led him back through the field
in a handful of laps to capture a 4th place finish.
In his Meridian Center
Electric Jr. Honda car, Isaac started 3rd in the A-Main. As the green flag
waved, he immediately took the lead on the second lap. Isaac pulled away from
the second place runner and started lapping traffic. He went on to win the Jr.
Honda A-Main and was the only car on Hoosier's new A30A compound. Isaac's winning

Peck Sweeps Jr. Honda Heat and Feature
XENIA, OH (April 21, 2007) -- In QMA's Region 4,
Miami Valley QMRA was hosting their first weekly points race on April
21st. Justin Peck, a native from the Indianapolis area, competed in
the Jr. Honda class on Hoosier's new A40A compound. Justin had a clean
sweep winning both his heat and feature by a considerable
A week later, Justin picked up where he left off
by winning his Jr. Honda heat race on the same A40A's. Rain, however,
would shorten the weekend for all the competitors.
Justin's dad, Steve, commented that the tires had great wear
and consistency. Justin's winning combination was:
15301 A40A 33.0/4.5-6 RF
15600 A40A 34.5-6.0-6 RR
Justin's success on Hoosiers stretches as far
back as the Columbus Indoor season where he won three consecutive Jr.
Honda features with two races won back-to-back on the same set of
A40A's and one race won on A30A tires.
Tobey Wins Jr. Honda While Torgalski Comes From Tail to Win
PA (April 29, 2007) -- In QMA's Region 2, Doylestown QMRC kicked off
their third points race of the season with 87 cars on hand. Matt Tobey
(photo) and Chris Torgalski competed in the Jr. Honda and Heavy 160
classes, respectively. They were the only Hoosier-shod drivers on hand
with Hoosier's new A30A compound tires. The decision to go with the
newly developed Hoosier tires proved quite rewarding.
On Sunday, Matt started on the outside pole of
the Jr. Honda A-Main race. As many QM racers know, starting on the
outside row can be frustrating while battling for a spot in the inside
row. With this in the back of his mind, Matt was still able to drive
the A30A's with confidence and go on to win his first Jr. Honda A-main
race. Matts winning combination included:
15151 A30 31.0/4.5-5 LF
15171 A30 32.0/4.5-5 LR
15301 A30A 33.0/4.5-6 RF
15600 A30A 34.5/6.0-6 RR
Chris Torgalski, after finding success a week
prior at Doylestown on the Hoosier A30A, decided he would try to make
it two-for-two in the Heavy 160 class. Chris started in last
place in the ten-car field and was able to pull to 3rd place by the
end of the third lap. He continued to move through the field and went
on to win the Heavy 160 class for the second consecutive week. Chris's
winning combination included:
15301 A30A 33.0/4.5-6
15600 A30A 34.5/6.0-6
Hoosier would like to congratulate Isaac, Justin, Matt
and Chris on their recent success while riding on Hoosier tires.
