DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Continental Tire the Americas' General Tire brand has secured exclusive tire supplier and official racing tire status with NASCAR's K&N Pro Series, Pinty's Series and PEAK Mexico Series for the next few years.
These deals are in addition to General's status as race tire supplier for the ARCA Series and the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series and ties in with NASCAR's plan to merge the ARCA and K&N Pro Series in 2020.
Financial terms were not disclosed. General replaces Goodyear as tire supplier for the various second-tier NASCAR series. Goodyear continues as the supplier to NASCAR's premier series — Monster Energy Cup Series; XFINITY Series; and Camping World Truck Series.
The new contracts also serve as replacements of sorts for the IMSA road-racing series contracts that Michelin Motorsport took over this year.
