Gateway delivers young ladies first win! Congratulations Shannon Beimfohr



It is always nice to end the day on a high note, and today I was able to do just that. I received a note from Dave Beimfohr who I helped with some drag tires recently for his daughters dragster.

He wanted me to know that she pulled off her first win in Super Pro after 7 rounds at Gateway last weekend. She managed to beat the Gateway Champion plus a strong field for her first win!

CONGRATULATIONS Shannon  and Dave Beimfohr on your win, they say the first is always the hardest to get, but if you are on Hoosier Racing Tires it is always just a little easier!

We are "Tires Designed for Champions"

The 2016 SCCA Runoffs are complete and the results are astounding!



The 2016 SCCA Runoffs are complete and the results are astounding! 

Hoosier Racing Tire managed to garner 63 podium finishes, including 20 class wins! Our nearest competition managed only 9 podium finishes and no more than 3 class wins!

Results like this come as no accident, it takes a lot of hard work and dedication from the Business Unit Manager Bruce Foss to the assistant product managers, the engineering staff, the distributors, the employees who service the event and most importantly, the CUSTOMERS!

It takes the complete package to make it all work, but it all begins with "Tires that are Designed for Champions"! 

Thank you to each and every one of our customers who patronized us during the event, and CONGRATULATIONS to each of our class winners on their great runs!
