LAKEVILLE, IN -- Since the close of the racing season,
Hoosier Tire tallied its SCCA championship win total at 69 individual
championships and this does not include the number of second and third
place finishers using the tire of choice for many autocrossers, club
racers and regional competitors.
At this year's Fall SCCA events, Hoosier Tire again provided a
competitive race tire and unsurpassed on-site factory and service
representation. It started in Topeka, KS with the 31st SCCA
Tire Rack Solo II National Champions where Hoosier Tires were used on
over 800 competitors and captured 50 National Championships. On the
third day of competition, even rain could not hinder the Hoosier-shod
drivers from staying ahead of the rest of the field.
After the dust settled, Team-Hoosier had captured the most Solo
II championships in the history of the company.
The week after the Solo II Nationals, club racers from all over the
USA met in Lexington, OH at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course to show
their skills which they have been refining all year long. Since the
1960's, the world's best amateur road racers have been invited to
compete in an event known as the "Super Bowl" of amateur
road racing--the Valvoline Runoffs.
Since 1994, the location of this annual extravaganza has been the
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course where each year 24-class winners are
determined. When the seven-day event ended, Team-Hoosier sped
away with seven class wins, 7 runner-up finishes and 8 third place
finishes in the 23 open classes contested (One class, Spec Racer Ford,
has a spec tire rule). Not surprisingly, there were more competitors
using Hoosier tires than any other tire manufacturer at the annual
As the month of September ended, the SCCA regional racers started
prepping their cars for the year-end regional championship race in
November called the American Road Race of Champions (ARRC). The
three-day event is held each year at Road Atlanta in Braselton,
GA. Over 200 competitors were on hand with most opting to use the new
R3S04 competition radial.
After all was said and
done, Hoosier Tire came away with twelve (12) out of thirteen (13)
class wins, 10 second place finishes and 10 third place finishes. On
Sunday, two separate enduro events took place and after each 2 hour
event Team-Hoosier swept all five class wins along with three second
place finishes and three third place finishes.
