Industry support for the Professional Drag Racers Association has continued to increase since the organization’s inception one year ago. New companies have come on board and companies that were involved in the inaugural season are stepping up with greater commitment for 2015. Hoosier Tire continues their role and will again be supporting the PDRA in their sophomore season.
“We are grateful for the commitment of companies like Hoosier,” stated PDRA’s Bob Harris. “They have a great reputation in the industry and it means a lot for them to back us as we grow in our reputation as the world’s premier eighth-mile drag racing association. We welcome Hoosier and their team back in 2015 and look forward to working with them.”
The “Tires Designed for Champions” motto that Hoosier totes is well understood in the PDRA with many of the organization’s frontrunning teams sporting Hoosier Tires. In fact the majority of the 2014 PDRA Champions won their respective titles on Hoosier Tires: Bubba Stanton (PX), Jason Harris (PN), Todd Tutterow (PB), Dan Ferguson (TS), and Travis Harvey (TD). Other notable drivers include Jason Scruggs, Shannon Jenkins, Mike Castellan, Ronnie Davis, David Rampy, Frank Manzo and many others.
“We are always trying to support any sanctioning body that promotes racing,” stated Hoosier Drag Racing and Pro Street Product Manager, Steve Hudspeth. “We love the ‘go fast’ classes because it challenges us and our products to be the best. Hoosier Racing Tire only produces racing tires. This by itself demands that we produce the best performing product possible.”
Hudspeth plans to attend all ten PDRA events in 2015, along with trackside service, to assist customers with their on-site needs. Pertinent to PDRA Top Dragster competitors, Hoosier will be introducing a new 15.0/34.5-16 C1500 Tire for the class this year.
“Racers demand a tire that will repeat from run to run, as well as set to set… and it has to be fast,” Hudspeth concluded. It’s this type of tire that Hoosier will again be bringing to PDRA competition in 2015.
