GREENVILLE, S.C. (Nov. 17, 2003) — Michelin North America Inc.'s BFGoodrich brand has signed a multi-year agreement to be the official tire supplier for the 2004 Hooters ProCup stock car racing series.
The brand will provide its Traction T/A oval-track tire for use in the series, the tire maker said. The radial tires replace the former supplier's bias-ply tires, BFGoodrich said. To ease the change, the brand's engineering support will be heavy during the 30-race series, the Greenville-based company said.
BFGoodrich said the radial tires—which will be offered in two sizes—will give teams and drivers improved wear and stable performance during long green-flag runs.
