Hoosier Racing Tire, Oswego Speedway Continue Partnership
OSWEGO, NY (March 9) – For over 20 years Hoosier Racing Tire has played an integral role in the racing action at Oswego Speedway, and that will continue in 2012. Hoosier’s Irish Saunders and Oswego Speedway co-owner John Torrese announced today their continued partnership which will see Hoosier Racing Tires on every entrant in the Novelis Supermodified division and Pathfinder Bank SBS Series at the Speedway.
“We are excited to continue our relationship with Oswego Speedway,” said Saunders. “John (Torrese) has done a great job with the Speedway and he is very passionate about Supermodified racing - he’s a racer. Bentley (Warren) called me and said they are going to great things with the track as new owners, and they are coming through.”
Since the early 1990’s Hoosier Racing Tire has been the official tire manufacturer of Novelis Supermodified racing at Oswego Speedway. Not long after, they also became the official tire of the Pathfinder Bank SBS Series. The relationship has grown over a 20 year period, but each knows there is always more work to be done.
“After a year of working with John and Eric, we heard what they needed,” said Saunders. “We have designed a brand new Oswego Speedway Novelis Supermodified left rear tire for the coming season. The tire is going to allow for more grip to tighten the cars up some and also help to be more consistent. We are committed to Oswego Speedway and its racers and we want to give them what they need, after all the drivers are the show. Throw in Mike Silliman to help manage the tires on a weekly basis, and we think we have a great fit.”
Once again for 2012, drivers in the Novelis Supermodified and Pathfinder Bank SBS divisions will be vying for the overall Hoosier Racing Tire Championship at Oswego Speedway. Division champions will not only be rewarded with their Championship check, but also a coveted Hoosier Racing Tire Champion’s jacket.
“We’re proud to continue our partnership with Hoosier Racing Tire,” said Torrese. “Hoosier has shown their eagerness to work with us and our drivers to provide the ultimate product in open-wheel, short track, asphalt racing. With the speeds at which our racers travel on a weekly basis, they deserve to be on the best tire possible.”
The 2012 racing season at Oswego Speedway begins May 5th. Events run May through September on most Saturday nights, culminating with the Fall Championship 75 on September 15th.
The annual Speedway open practice is scheduled for April 28th.
