DIRTcar Racing officials have issued a suspension and fine to Late Model driver Kyle Bronson for failing a tire test after competing in the DIRTcar Racing event on February 13, 2024, at Volusia Speedway Park. 

A tire sample was taken at the event and sent to an independent laboratory for testing of chemically altering substances in the tires in a comparative analysis.

The test revealed the tire did not match or conform to the benchmarks provided by Hoosier Tire Company. Additional analysis verified the primary laboratory findings.

Due to the violation, Bronson has been fined, in total $3,400 — $1,000 fine, $400 tire analysis fee, and loss of $2,000 in prize money from that event — suspended from all sanctioned DIRTcar Racing events for 30 days.
