Jeff Gamroth set a new track record on Hoosier's new R100 radial slicks at the 49th annual Rose Cup Classic in Oregon.PORTLAND, OR (June 12-14, 2009) -- The latest evolution in race tires for sport cars from Hoosier Racing Tire was on display at the 49th Annual Rose Cup Festival last week at Portland International Raceway.

Hoosier's new R100 radial slicks made quite a splash during the three-day event when Jeff Gamroth won both of his PCA2 races on Saturday and Sunday. 

In addition to the pair of wins, the Tualatin, OR driver also smashed the old track record in his Porsche 993 RSR. 

Gamroth, and his Hoosier R100's, set a new track record Saturday when he circled the 1.997-mile track in 1:18.998 seconds.

The new mark wouldn't stand long though. That's because Gamroth got another turn on the track the next day.

On Sunday, Gamroth's bettered his previous day's record by more than a second with a time of 1:17.925 seconds. 

The time was his second track record in as many days using his Hoosier R100 racing slicks.

Hoosier Product Manager Tim Gilvin attended the event and provided the details for this report.

The Annual Rose Cup event attracted over 400 drivers from all over the country competing in 25 different classes. 

Sixteen races contested throughout the weekend culminating in the Rose Cup Classic race on Sunday.

The Annual Rose Cup event is recognized as the country's oldest amateur race west of the Mississippi.
