2011 JUNE SPRINTS SCCA NATIONAL EVENT

Submitted by: Paula Nate

June 16-17, 2011 (Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin) – While fast-moving Grassroots racing action takes place almost every weekend, this weekend on the spectacular four-mile rolling, twisting, turning Road America road course, the 56th edition of the Chicago Region SCCA WeatherTech June Sprints were held.  Nearly four hundred teams competed in the first leg of what’s known as the “Triple Crown” of sports car club racing. 

This year enhancing our total amount of wins from years past, Hoosier Racing Tire drivers stood on the highest step of the podium a total of eighteen times, in twenty five classes available. A couple of these classes are sanctioned classes in which Hoosier does not participate in, at this time.

Any driver will tell you it could not be done without wonderful teams, starting with the tire servicing done by Hoosier Tire Midwest, out of Plymouth, Indiana, working in a timely, organized and effective manner, getting drivers out on the track racing.  Hoosier Racing Tire corporate also added valuable engineering and technical support throughout the week.
