"When we began this process we wanted more than just a tire supplier, we wanted a partner with an eye to the future," he said. "I'm confident that Hoosier Racing Tire is that partner, and I look forward to working with them as we continue to grow the Trans Am Series."
Hoosier will supply all three Trans Am classes: TA, TA2 and TA3. The Lakeville, Ind.-based race tire specialist replaces Goodyear as the series' race tire supplier.
The effort will feature a dedicated research and development program, including a brand new TA class tire for road courses, a more robust TA class tire for speedway-styled road courses like Daytona International Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway as well as molded rain tires for the TA class.
