FASCAR changed tire manufacturers this week from Goodyear to Hoosier. In the short term, this will cause some expense and frustration to the racers, so in response to the public out-cry, here is a sampling of racer opinion.
Top 10 Things Overheard in the FASCAR Pits
“Hey, this never happens on ‘Pinks!’”
“No problem. When I raced karts my dad carried 100 mounted tires in our stacker!”
“You guys need to buy a bunch of my tires. I’ve got a sick speedway to support”.
“But the promoters at the seminar said to never do this…”
“I hear Hoosier is moving their tire manufacturing to Mexico.”
“Its ok, they will buy back the unused tires…..Oops! You’re too late!”
“They are the softest compound Hoosier makes? That means they last longer, right?”
“Oh boy, these leak through the sidewall too!”
“Wait until you hear the announcement about pit slabs!”
