HOOSIER BRAND SHINES AT NORWALK

NORWALK, OH (May 16-18, 2014) -- This past weekend there was a "little" drag race in Norwalk, OH which turned into a HUGE drag race with attendance over 20,000 fans for a NHRA Lucas Oil Divisional race. 

The race featured everything from a Jet powered Kenworth to 14-second stockers. With rain and cold weather controlling most of the first three days of action, it came down to trying to get the race completed in just one day. 

Late at night with the lights shining on the 1/4 mile track the finals for Top Alcohol Dragster and Funny car were contested. Top Alcohol Dragster would end up with both Hoosier Tire shod cars taking the track. Marty Thacker would succumb to oil pressure difficulty handing the victory to Brandon Booher. Both dragsters race on Hoosier 18790C2055 rear tires. More

DUTCH STUDENTS RIDE HOOSIERS TO NEW WORLD RECORD!

DUT students celebrate setting a new world record for acceleration on Hoosier racing tires.VALKENBURG, NETHERLANDS (September 20, 2013) -- Recently, students from Delft University of Technology gathered at Valkenburg airport in an attempt to set a new world record for acceleration in an electric car.

Using last year's DUT12 FSAE vehicle, the team put their lightest driver, Marly Kuijpers, behind the wheel to pilot the 4WD Hoosier-shod rocket ship. 

The team was trying to better the previous record of 2.68 seconds to reach 100 km/h (62 mph). 

Due to the cool conditions and since the run was expected to be less than three seconds, the team determined it necessary to pre-warm their tires. More
