“I have always thought it is the best tire for our series,” said Tom Cumbow, the General Manager of the ARCA Truck Series. “Besides it being a great tire, knowing they are all made in the USA is just a bonus!”

Hoosier Racing Tires will be supplied to the ARCA Truck Series through Ed & Company Racing Supplies of Columbus, Ohio. Ed & Company Racing Supplies will have a selection of new tires at every event, except the races in Canada.
