Orrville, OH (February 7, 2007) --- Management of Federated Auto Parts/Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, OH has just announced a major marketing partnership with Hoosier Racing Tire that will be in effect for the next three years and will make Hoosier Racing Tire the ‘Official Tire of Federated Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway’. The new corporate partnership with Hoosier Racing Tire of Lakeville, IN will be administered through Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic based in Baltimore, MD and Pittsburgh, PA.

“This is a great partnership for not only Federated Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway but also for our many race teams,” stated Ernie Coffman, owner & promoter of the popular 3/8 mile banked dirt oval. “Hoosier builds a quality product and they are a leader in this industry. It also tickled me that they have been so enthusiastic about partnering with us here at the track.”

Hoosier Racing Tire is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the company founded by Bob & Joyce Newton. Today, Hoosier is the largest race tire manufacturer in the world and all Hoosier race tires are still proudly ‘Made in the USA’. The company continues to be privately owned and operated by the Newton family and founders Bob and Joyce remain actively involved in the day-to-day operations. Hoosier produces over 1000 different types of race tires and their slogan is "Tires Designed for Champions."

“For us it’s enormous to be a part of one of the biggest speedways in Ohio and its great to have the Coffman’s on board with our brand and to be a part of the Hoosier family,” commented Bob Wirts of Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic. “We’re really excited. We’re new to that area, and within the last year we opened a new distributorship in Pittsburgh and this is a huge, huge deal for us.”

“We’ve been visiting a lot over there the past year or two and our relationship has been building with Ernie & Clint Coffman and its been a positive climb since day one, and especially since we incorporated that area. And hopefully it will be a long term relationship.”

Specifics on the tires can be found on the Federated Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway website.
