Bullring Bash to Partner With Hoosier Tire for Modified Support in 2019 Season
Attleboro, MA (December 19, 2018) — Hoosier Racing Tire will be the Official Tire Supplier for Bullring Bash Quarter Mile Challenge events in 2019. In partnership with local distributor Hoosier Tires East, Bullring Bash Modified competitors can look forward to a number of Hoosier-backed contingency initiatives in 2019, as well as trackside support at all events.
“Partnering with Hoosier Racing Tire and Hoosier Tires East is the perfect step for the Bullring Bash Quarter Mile Challenge,” said Bullring Bash founder Josh Vanada. “Hoosier’s unparalleled support for Modified racing makes them an ideal partner, whether it’s with the best on the track or substantial bonus awards off of it. We’re excited to welcome them as our Official Tire Supplier for the 2019 season, and we look forward to a great year of racing!”
“I have a passion for Modified racing, and I think it’s very good what the Bullring Bash is doing to grow the sport and the hobby we all love,” said Irish Saunders of Hoosier Racing Tire. “It’s great to see things like this—special events that people can’t see every single day, like these Modified events, which will put on great racing. It’s great for the competitors and the whole racing community up in the Northeast.”
“It’s great to be working with everyone at the Bullring Bash,” added Rob Summers of Hoosier Tires East. “This is great for the sport—just going to White Mountain and Thunder Road is pretty neat for everybody, because Modifieds haven’t been to those tracks in quite a while. It should make for some great racing!”
As in other Modified promotions, Bullring Bash competitors will use the 1320 (left side) and 1330 (right side) tire compounds at all 2019 events. Teams will be allotted up to six tires per event for Qualifying Races and the Main Event. The two change tires for the event can be purchased and used at the team’s discretion. Teams will also be allowed to bring four Practice tires from previous events and have them scanned into their inventory, or purchase Practice tires at the track. The overall result is an economical tire program that allows teams to save money overall and be able to purchase as few as four tires for any Bullring Bash event.
Hoosier Racing Tire and Hoosier Tires East will also offer the following contingency awards for Modified competitors during the 2019 Bullring Bash Quarter Mile Challenge:
Hoosier Champion’s Jacket: Hoosier will award a Champion’s Jacket to the driver who earned the lowest race point total after competing in all three Bullring Bash events. In the event of a tie, the driver who earned the best finishing position in the final event of the season at Thunder Road International Speedbowl will earn the Champion’s Jacket.
Hoosier Hard Luck Award: Hoosier will award two tires at the next Bullring Bash event to the car owner whose team encountered the largest challenges or obstacles during each round. The Hoosier Hard Luck Award winner will be determined by Bullring Bash officials and announced after the race.
Hoosier Two-Tire Award: Hoosier will award two tires at the next Bullring Bash event to a team that finishes between 10th and 20th at each round. The lucky finishing position will be drawn and announced at the Driver/Crew Chief Meeting at the start of each event.
Hoosier Long Haul Award: Hoosier will award a $350 cash bonus to the Modified owner who travels the furthest distance for the race.
