Among the $420,000 earned by series triple-crown winner J.J. Yeley was an embroidered leather Hoosier jacket presented by Hoosier Open Wheel Asphalt Product Manager Irish Saunders. Then, on Saturday during the PRI show, a multi-year deal was struck between USAC and Hoosier making Hoosier the spec tire for the prestigious open-wheel series.

Commenting on the agreement Irish Saunders stated, "I, along with Hoosier, have been involved with USAC for over 20 years and I am very pleased we will be continuing this relationship in the years to come."

Saunders added, "Throughout the years, I have seen a lot of 'do's' and 'don'ts' in racing and I see a lot of 'do's' happening with USAC as we head into the future."

Also attending the USAC banquet and PRI show was Hoosier Open Wheel Dirt Product Manager Neil Cowman who had this to say about the multi-year deal, "USAC is one of the country's most high profile open-wheel series and it is a great forum for us to showcase our open competition tires."

As in the past season, Hoosier will be the exclusive tire when the three USAC National Series (Midget, Silver Crown and Sprint Car) compete on pavement as well as in the Midget Series when they race on dirt. The Silver Crown and Sprint Car Series' however, will have no tire-rule when they compete on dirt.
