Hoosier Racing Tire will once again be offering NASA TT competitors the opportunity to participate in their contingency tire program. All of the details are listed here:
https://www.hoosiertire.com/NASAawdg.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Here are the basics:
1st Place - 1 tire (minimum 3-6 cars in class)
1st Place - 2 tires (minimum 7 or more cars in class)
2nd Place - 1 tire (minimum 5 or more cars in class)
3rd Place - 1 tire (minimum 7 or more cars in class)

If you decide to participate in the program, please make sure that you follow all of the requirements and guidelines. Specifically, Hoosier has noted that there have been some in the past that have sold the tires that they won. This is strictly forbidden per the agreement all participants have made with Hoosier in electing to participate in the program.

"Any tires received through this program are for the recipients use only and are not to be sold or given to anyone else. Compliance is required and randomly checked."

I have been given notice by Hoosier that if our TT competitors do not follow this rule, that the program will be halted. If you have any questions regarding this rule, or any special circumstances, please contact Tim Gilvin at Hoosier.

Hoosier Racing Tire Corp.
65465 U.S. 31
Lakeville, IN 46536

This is excellent news and it's great that Hoosier is supporting TT with contingency. Let's not screw it up!

As discussed in other forums, it's also a rule that tires must be purchased from authorized distributors.
"To participate in Hoosier's NASA contingency program, race tires must be purchased through one of our authorized trackside dealers/distributors."

The Tire Rack is not on that list.

Thanks again Hoosier!

Some may be used to seeing things in this format:
3 or 4 starters - 1st place gets 1 tire
5 or 6 starters - 1st place gets 1 tire, 2nd place gets 1 tire
7 or more starters - 1st place gets 2 tires, 2nd place gets 1 tire, 3rd place gets 1 tire

That would be the Trackside requirement.

Does that mean in order to be eligible for contingency my existing Hoosiers should have been purchased from one of the trackside vendors? If so how does one go about proving the purchase of an old set of tires?

I would say it might be very difficult to prove where the old set was purchased...


buy a new set from a participating vendor, that will solve it....

So has it been formally ok'd to run tires we won at the tail end of last season in the first event of '10, and be eligible?

That statement alone exemplifies exactly what's wrong with this program. :roll:

I'd say that's the ONLY thing "wrong" about the program, and it's really not a big problem. For Hoosier, it means you had to buy their tires from someplace, and for the trackside support people it means that there is strong incentive to buy from them in the future. I know where I have purchased my tires, and I know where I will continue to purchase them. So while Hoosier can't police every aspect of the program, I think it is an excellent one. Besides, there is no difference in price from the trackside venders to any other Hoosier sales outlet (at least around here), so what's the point of using anyone else?
