F2000 Championship Series to Partner with Hoosier Racing Tire in '08

Sharon, CT, Nov. 26- The F2000 Championship Series is pleased today to announce a three year partnership with the Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. The largest race tire manufacturer in the world now joins the ever popular F2000 Championship Series that boasts the largest formula car fields in the country. "We are very pleased to welcome Hoosier Tires as our partner and presenting sponsor," stated Michael Rand, F2000 Managing Director. "As our series has developed, it is obvious we have created an environment where drivers, engineers, mechanics and team owners can enjoy their racing in a competitive arena. This relationship with Hoosier Tire will do nothing but add to that. The long term stability of this agreement offers a plus to everyone from the entrants and competitors to Hoosier Tire and the series organizers."

"We, at Hoosier, are very excited about the upcoming relationship with the F2000 Championship Series. The series has already grown to championship proportions," commented Bruce Foss, Road Racing Product Manager for Hoosier Racing. "Under the new agreement, further success is imminent. The series is a natural fit for Hoosier since we have known and worked with most of the competitors previously. This is an American tire for an American made series."

The Hoosier Racing Tire Corp., now in their 60th year, has a winning tradition on the race track. They have wins at the famed Daytona Motor Speedway in the Daytona 500 and the Rolex 24 Hour race. It was Hoosier Tire that took the pole at the Inaugural running of the Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. When Tony Stewart became the first driver to win the Triple Crown of USAC, he was racing on Hoosier Tires. Most recently, the ARCA Series which races on Hoosier Tires welcomed American F1 driver Scott Speed and Indy Car Champion Dario Franchitti, two drivers who cut their racing teeth in open wheel series similar to the F2000 Championship Series.

The new series name will be the F2000 Championship Series presented by Hoosier Tire. A new schedule for the 2008 season will be released in the coming month and it will continued to boast some of the top racing circuits in North America.
