Hoosier Inks Indoor Racing Series Deal
TRENTON, N.J. – Len Sammons Motorsports Productions has signed a multi-year contract with Hoosier Tires to be the exclusive tire provider for the three-quarter midgets during their Indoor Racing Series for the next three seasons.
“We are excited to partner with Hoosier Tires as the exclusive tire provider for our TQ Midgets,” stated series promoter Len Sammons. “I really feel this is a win, win deal for all our competitors. The rule will put everyone on a level playing field, eliminate supply issues and most importantly save the racers money.”
As part of the agreement, all three-quarter midget competitors will be required to run Hoosier tires on all four corners starting with the second running of the Battle Of Trenton Indoor Race to be held Dec. 19-20 at the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, N.J and the 13th annual Atlantic City Indoor Race to be held Jan. 30-31 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J.
“Our entire group at Hoosier and Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic (HTMA) are thrilled to be an even bigger part of the growing LSMP events in our region,” said HTMA’s Bob Wirts. ”We are excited to bring a competitive, durable, and affordable ten and thirteen inch tire to indoor racing market for the next several years.”
As part of a comprehensive program of incentives, the 2014-2015 Indoor Series champion will receive a minimum of $2,000 for winning the title. Additional cash awards will be paid to other top performers in the overall point standings. Full details on the point fund will be released at a later date.
“One of the most exciting parts of our agreement with Hoosier Tire is that we were able to reduce the price of the tires from past years,” said Sammons. “Tire cost is one of the largest expenses for any race team and under this agreement our teams should save between $50 and $100 per set of tires.”
