Oil Capital Sprints Sign With Hoosier
TULSA, Okla. – The next Oil Capital Racing Series sprint-car season will see a new tire rule as the series has selected Hoosier Tire as the official racing tire beginning in 2013.
When Goodyear made the announcement this past summer they were withdrawing from dirt track racing, OCRS began to research a replacement supplier for the growing series. After reviewing the proposals, Hoosier Tire was the tire of choice.
“OCRS had another year option with Goodyear,” explained series President Barry Grabel, “In addressing the inventory status that we (OCRS) would be working with in 2013, it was decided that OCRS may be best suited to make a change now rather that wait for 2014. We received other generous proposals from other suppliers and when it came down to decision time, the Hoosier proposal became the one that fit our needs the best.”
The corporate facility of Hoosier Tires, which was established in 1957, is based in Lakeville, Ind., with the manufacturing facilities in nearby Plymouth, Ind. Hoosier Tires has multiple distributorships in the country to serve the countless number racers that run on Hoosier’s today.
The company is also well known for supplying tires for the majority of the nation’s highest profile dirt track racing organizations.
