High Banked Oval Road Course Recommendations

Hoosier Tire’s road race tire line is designed for flat road course applications throughout the country. However, as several sanctioning bodies include high banked oval road courses in their race schedules, Hoosier Tire customers must take note on the car and tire setup differences when running on these high banked oval road courses. These recommendations must be adhered to or tire overloading will occur.

High banked oval road courses include, but are not limited to, Daytona International Speedway, Texas World Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Auto Club -Fontana Speedway, Homestead – Miami, Lowes Motor Speedway, Kansas Speedway, New Hampshire Int’l Speedway, Pikes Peak International Raceway, Pocono Raceway, Texas Motor Speedway and Watkins Glen Int’l. Although Watkins Glen Int’l is not a high banked oval road course, it does offer high speeds and loads similar to high banked oval road courses. Cold starting pressures also need to increase when an aero package used. This will produce additional down force and can damage race tires if air pressure is not increased.
