Rock Island Grand Prix and Hoosier Racing Tire Begin Partnership in 2018

Hoosier Racing Tire is proud to announce its partnership with the Rock Island Grand Prix board for the 2018 Xtream Rock Island Grand Prix powered by Mediacom event held on Labor Day weekend from September 1-2, 2018.

The board has opted to spec Hoosier R60A tires for all Briggs & Stratton 206 (except Ignite) and all Yamaha classes. Tires will be available at the discounted price of $185/set through registration. The Supplemental Rules lists the tire specifics for each class. Extra sets may also be purchased at this discounted price.

 “The entire Hoosier Racing Tire team is extremely proud to be named as the spec tire for select classes at one of America’s most renowned kart street races,” statedAdam Batton, Kart Tire Product Manager at Hoosier. “This is an exciting opportunity for us to promote karting and showcase our products on a grand stage at the grassroots level. The tires are competitively priced to curb racing expenses and make it more economical for kart racers to enjoy an experience only “The Rock” can offer. Hoosier Tire looks forward to working with Roger Ruthhart and the entire RIGP staff in 2018 to make this event one the best in recent years!”
