Tyler Robinson wins on Hoosiers!COLUMBUS, OH (August 21-22) -- The brand new Hoosier Quarter Midget tires recently carried eight year old Tyler Robinson to a weekend he will not soon forget. The youngster along with his grandfather crew-chief and two-time ARCA Re/Max Series Champion, Marvin Smith, swept every event he took part in August 21st and 22nd while  proclaiming, "I love those Hoosiers."

Robinson competes in the Jr Honda class of Quarter Midgets of America, an organization of over 3,000 families throughout the United States. Broken down into thirteen "Regions," the world's oldest youth-based motorsport, designates the Great Lakes area as "Region 4." Tyler and his family live in Beavercreek, OH and participate primarily at three central Ohio quarter midget tracks, Mac-O-Chee Quarter Midgets (West Liberty, OH), Miami Valley Quarter Midgets, (Xenia, OH) and Buckeye Quarter Midgets (Columbus, OH).

Robinson's weekend started at the Miami Valley track located on the property of Kil-Kare Speedway in Xenia, OH on Saturday. The Valley Elementary third grader established a new track record in qualifications and then captured both the heat and feature races. "We had the Hoosier's since the Gasoline Alley Nationals (July 8-11) but had not tried them," related Smith. "They hooked up immediately and worked great."

Tyler's mom, dad, "PaPa" and "Grammy" then made their way to the the Buckeye Quarter Midget track. Constructed on the grounds of Columbus Motor Speedway by the late John Nuckles in 1965, the 1/20th-mile layout is a downsized replica of the adjacent third-mile NASCAR sanctioned oval. Utilizing the same QMA-40 right front and right rear tires that had proved so valuable a day earlier, Robinson was fast right off the trailer. He again established the quickest qualifying time and dominated both his heat and feature. Smith's wife Linda ("Grammy") was heard chanting, "Hoosier, Hoosier, Hoosier," as the team pulled their car back to the family's trailer.
