DIRTcar Racing and Hoosier Tire Continue Relationship as Official Tire For DIRTcar Late Model Competition Through 2013

Hoosier Racing TireConcord, N.C. — Nov. 23, 2010 — By Chris Dolack, DIRTcar Racing P.R. – DIRTcar Racing today announced the continuance of Hoosier Racing Tire as the approved tire for DIRTcar Late Model competition for the next three years.

First introduced 20 years ago, the premium LM10, LM20, LM30 and LM40 have become the standards in Late Model racing.

“Hoosier always has been, and continues to be, an integral part of DIRTcar Racing’s mission to bring racers a standardized rules package, making it easier for any driver to race anywhere, at any time,” said Sam Driggers, DIRTcar UMP Regional Director.

Also announced is the arrival of the DCM55 and DCM21, tires engineered to be used as DIRTcar Racing expands into its newest sanctioned regions. The DCM55 and DCM21 tire is designed for series, weekly tracks and racers who prefer a one-compound tire program. It utilizes the standard LM large block pattern for durability with a consistent, high-grip compound. The sidewalls, air pressure settings and numbering system will be similar to the current LM tires.

The Hoosier DCM tires area purpose-built specifically for tracks in the West, South and Northwestern United States participating under DIRTcar Racing’s sanction.

“With the new DCM tires, Hoosier Tire is making another significant investment in DIRTcar Racing as they have the past 20 years,” Driggers said.
