HOOSIER Press Release concerning A40-S

To: All DIRTcar Competitors and Promoters

From: Hoosier Racing Tire Corporation

After several nights of race evaluation and a tire test, it has become clear that some changes need to be made to the current DIRTcar UMP tire lineup.

“Sometimes when you make a change to a tire, you improve things for one area of the country, but do not have the same effect in others.” stated Hoosier Product Manager Shanon Rush. “We have received mixed feedback from DIRTcar racers so far this season. At some tracks, the new A40S has been a home run, in others it has not met ours, or the competitors’, expectations.”

In order to address these concerns, Hoosier Racing Tire will restart production on the original 26.5 and 27.5 A40 DIRTcar Tire. In addition, a 26.5 H40 will be created and be made available for purchase when sufficient inventory is in stock. Production will continue as necessary to meet sales demand on the new A40S. The legal tires for DIRTcar for the remainder of the 2015 season will be the D40, A40S, A40, and H40. Participating tracks will continue to have the right to select or limit the compounds that are used at their facilities.

In order to assist the DIRTcar competitors who may have purchased extra A40S tires, Hoosier Racing Tire has agreed to allow returns on any unused, unsiped, unaltered A40S tires. Competitors will be able to exchange these tires at no additional cost for D40’s, A40’s, or H40’s. Hoosier will work with its affiliated dealer and distributor network to facilitate these exchanges.

Hoosier Racing Tire would like to thank all DIRTcar Competitors and Promoters for their patience and cooperation. Please be assured that we will learn and improve from this experience in the future.

And the people who are out $125+ for each inferior tire that they used and tore up are out of luck? That's what I thought.
And now for as long as you can find the A 40s there will be 4 compounds and an additional size of tire ( H) and all are legal....that should help
