AKRON (Feb. 22, 2005) — Goodyear's Dunlop brand will be available to drivers in the 2005 Tire Rack Cannonball One Lap of America performance challenge.
Goodyear said the SP Sport Maxx ultra-high performance tire is available for the extreme driving event, joining seven other tire brands.
The event begins April 29 at Tire Rack's headquarters in South Bend, Ind. Drivers travel at legal speeds from the Midwest to the eastern U.S. and back. Each vehicle is required to be equipped with a single brand of tires.
In a separate move, Goodyear said its Dunlop brand also will be showcased in an upcoming episode of Sports Car Revolution on Speed Channel. Audi modifier STaSIS Engineering will feature an Audi A4 outfitted with Dunlop SP Super Sport Race tires—non-competition, DOT-legal street tires designed for supercar owners and autocross enthusiasts.
