FREMONT, Ohio - In an effort
to address the costs of racing for sprint
car teams at Fremont Speedway
and Attica Raceway park, Hoosier Tire
Company is working with
the tracks to make changes to the spec tire
Beginning with races
in June, only the Hoosier SC-15 and Hoosier SC-25
right rear tires will be
required as spec tires at both race tracks.
Fremont Speedway Promoter
Rich Farmer said the tracks wanted to give
race teams and suppliers
like Kear's Speed Shop and Kistler Race
Products time to cycle through
the SC-12s they have remaining in stock.
"After talks with Rex LeJeune
(Attica Raceway Park Operations Manager)
Attica will follow suit
with Fremont Speedway to implement a little
harder spec tire rule,"
said Farmer. "I want to thank Hoosier Tire for
working with us to help
the racers. I
own a sprint car and I know
how expensive it can be to keep rubber on
one of these. Hopefully
this will help."
Farmer said the tire rules
for the sanctioning bodies that visit both
tracks will remain.
