NC (June 2, 2007) -- Kyle Resco decided to try his luck with
Hoosier's new A40A quarter midget tires recently at the NCQMA Speedway. As a
2-time Quarter Midget Association (QMA) National Champion, Kyle is no stranger
to the winner's circle.
After missing pre-race qualifying, Kyle was forced to start last in the
Briggs A-main event event. But the 12-year-old wouldn't let that stop him from
finding his way to victory lane.
By lap 18, Kyle was in the lead and on his way to the win. The Roanoke, VA
native was driving a Stanley Chassis with Power by Murray Performance Briggs
World Formula engine.
The victory was even more impressive given the fact that it was Kyle's first
time ever competing on the new A40A tires. The win also propelled Kyle into the
lead in track's Championship Points Series for the Briggs World Formula Class.
Kyle's father Bob commented, "Because of the weight and horsepower of
the Briggs class, the biggest problem we've had this season is that the car
will slow down on a long run. But these (Hoosier) tires never slowed down and
ran consistent lap times from start to finish."
The elder Resco added, "We are very impressed with the performance of
these tires. Every tire we've run so far this year was worn out after a single
feature event. But the new A40A held up great and showed very little wear. We'll
even run the same set of tires again at our next race."
Resco added, "If QMA is looking for a spec tire for the 2008 season,
this (Hoosier) tire needs to be at the top of their list."
After the race, Kyle commented, "The (Hoosier) tires made my car very
stable and gave us a lot of grip. Usually, I can feel the tires going away, but
these tires never gave up."
Kyle's winning combination included:
RF - 33.0/4.5-6 A40A (Item #15301 A40A)
RR – 35.0/7.1-6 A40A (Item #15751 A40A)
