FL (March 15) -- Winged Sprint driver RC Roper captured his 2nd USA
Sprints Series win of the season at Thundercross Motorsports Complex
in Florida over the weekend. While Roper's win was not that unusual,
the fact that he did so on a discontinued Hoosier right rear tire was.
Roper, also known as "The Racin' Cowboy", won using one of
the few remaining Hoosier 105/18.0-15 C4000 D10 sprint tires.
Hoosier Open Wheel Dirt Product Manager Neil Cowman
commented on the win, "RC called me several weeks ago to order
the discontinued right rear tire and wouldn't you know it, he won
using it." Cowman added, "Not surprisingly, the phone has
been ringing with inquiries about how many of the tires are left and
how they can purchase them."
As of this writing, there are currently 39 of them
left in stock and they are being sold for $110.00. Anyone interested
in purchasing one or more of these or other discontinued tires available
at Hoosier can contact Neil Cowman at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call him at 574-784-3152. A complete discontinued dirt tire listing can be found
