LUCAS OIL LATE MODEL DIRT SERIES ANNOUNCES EXCLUSIVE PARTNERSHIP WITH HOOSIER TIRE

WAYCROSS, GA (February 27, 2013) - Officials of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series are excited to announce an exclusive partnership with Hoosier Tire as the "Official" Race Tire for the series and a new tire rule implemented for all series sanctioned events in 2013. The new agreement with Hoosier Tire will reduce the amount of tires needed including limited compounds and constructions.

With this new agreement the LOLMDS is taking steps to reduce the costs and burden of carrying so many tires to a LOLMDS event. The series has always welcomed two tire manufacturers to compete on the series but the competition among the tire companies created too many compounds and new constructions for race teams to keep up with and be prepared. With our previous tire rule, race teams were having to purchase the same amount of tire constructions and compounds as compared to the open tire rules before the series began.

"Hoosier has been involved with the Lucas Oil Late Model Series from its beginning." said Dennis Sherman, vice president of sales and marketing for Hoosier Racing Tire. "When we consider a partner, we focus on the vision of the sanctioning body, the participants, and the strength of schedule. We are proud to become the official race tires of Lucas Oil Late Models."

HOOSIER DISTRIBUTOR ANNOUNCES NEW E-MOD DRIVER REWARDS PROGRAM

Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic and Precise Racing Products are proud to announce a new Driver Rewards Program for E-mod competitors in the Ohio, Western NY, and Pennsylvania region. HTMA/Precise has posted a guaranteed minimum $11,500 cash point fund plus tire/product contingencies that will be paid directly to our teams in this competitive area for the 2012 racing season.  

“We definitely felt it was time to get back to rewarding the racers for their support of our Hoosier product,” stated HTMA/Precise General Manager Bob Wirts. “We needed to develop a simple, performance-based reward system. If the drivers get rewarded, so will the racetracks, with higher and more consistent car counts.

HOOSIER ENDS SUPPORT OF TSMA SERIES

LAKEVILLE, IN (January 30, 2012) -- Hoosier Racing Tire regrets to inform the drivers, owners and promoters who race with the TSMA organization that it will be unable to continue its support of the sanctioning body in 2012.

“It is never an easy decision to end a relationship like this,” stated Hoosier Product Manager Shanon Rush. “Although we were close to coming to an agreement for 2012, the recent rule changes proposed by TSMA would not allow competitors racing on Hoosier Tires to have a fair chance at the championship. We also reviewed last year’s point standings and very little of our sponsorship was reaching our dedicated Hoosier customers. It's time to take our support back to those who support Hoosier Tires.”

“This philosophical change does not weaken our commitment to Modified racing,” reiterated Mr. Rush. “It is our intent to continue open competition tire development, race track and driver support, and support for organizations that support Hoosier Tire and our Distributors. We wish TSMA and those drivers who support it good luck and apologize that we were unable to reach an agreement for 2012.”
