Mickey Thompson Backs Glidden’s Pro Mod

STOW, Ohio — Bill Glidden is stepping up to compete in the NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series with a nitrous-powered Ford Mustang sponsored by Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels.

“We’re very happy to continue working closely with the folks at Mickey Thompson,” said Glidden. “We’ve had a long-standing relationship with them and appreciate the opportunity to make a contribution to product development. I can’t wait to see what this Mustang can do on the tires we’ve developed for Pro Mod.”

Glidden will compete with the ET Drag 34.0/13.5-16W, part number 3190W, developed through the Big Tire Development Program, a collaborative effort between Glidden and the Mickey Thompson research and development team.

“Bill’s a winner and we’ve been supporting his team for a long time,” stated Ken Warner, VP of Marketing for Mickey Thompson. “It’s fantastic for us to see Bill take a step up into one of the fastest racing classes in the NHRA on Mickey Thompson tires and wheels.”

Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels will also return to NHRA drag racing as a major sponsor of the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. Mickey Thompson Motorsports will support racers as a contingency sponsor for all Sportsman racing classes as well as Pro Mod and Pro Stock Motorcycle.
