Hoosier Racing Tire Will Continue Successful Partnership with Auto Value Bumper to Bumper Super Sprints and King of Wing in 2015  

CASSOPOLIS, Mich. (December 12, 2014) – The most powerful name in short track racing tires, Hoosier Racing Tires, will continue its successful partnership with the Auto Value Bumper to Bumper Super Sprints (AVBBSS) and King of the Wing Sprint Car Shootout for the 2015 racing season.

Hoosier Racing Tire has been the official tire of the AVBBSS since Michigan Short Track Legend Gary Fedewa earned the initial pavement series victory in May of 1997 at Auto City Speedway in Clio, Mich. Since that initial event, Hoosier has helped provide some of the best Sprint Car Racing in the country. During the early portion of the partnership, Hoosier and AVBBSS developed the right rear tire that is continued to be utilized by many Pavement Sprint Car series today.
