Pepsi Sprintcar Tire update:
We have one race left on the 14″ RR tire.
The final 2 races we will be allowed to run the 17″ RR Tire that American Racer makes. It’s the same tire that we have just wider. The cost is the same, so we figure this is a good time to do a test on the tire to see if it is good or bad for the 2013 class of Pepsi Sprintcars.
We have plenty of them at the speedway office if any of you would like to get one to practice on between now and the first “big tire” race on 8-25

March 16, 2012

PRO-4 Tire update:
Just checked with Hoosier, It appears that the R&D tire that we are expecting to arrive for a test was built today.
Hope to see them show up in the office in a few days.

Pro-4 Tire Testing has been scheduled. We should have a few sets of the new 23.5/9.5-13 and 23.0/9.5-13 tires ready for a few laps of testing by the second week of March. We’ll need a couple of cars that are ready and willing to do the test. If we are happy with the tire Hoosier Tire West will go into production immediatly so we can have a large stock of them available prior to the April 14 &15 test weekend.
