USARACING ANNOUNCES OFFICIAL TIRE FOR 2009 SEASON

Concord, NC- March 11, 2009- USARacing is pleased to announce the BFGoodrich "GForce" Radial will be the Official Tire for the Pro Cup Series for 2009. This year will mark the 6th consecutive year that USARacing Pro Cup competition will race on the BFG "GForce" Radial.

"We are very happy to have BFGoodrich back with USARacing this year," said Series Director Jimmy Wilson. "With the proven history they have with the series and the engineer support they provide at each event, they were the natural choice."

BFG will provide an 11inch tire which was used in competition at Iowa and Rockingham in 2008. BFG conducted a successful tire test recently and information will be forwarded to USARacing teams as soon as the BFG engineers finish downloading data. "We feel this will help teams since we will not have as many different tire combinations from track to track this year," Wilson added.

USARacing will also feature a new tire distributor for 2009.. Jackson-Dawson, one of only two authorized tire distributors for BFG will service the needs of USARacing competitors for the season. Teams can call the USARacing Office at 704-788-7979 and speak with Linda Nerone for ordering and shipping information for practice tires. The switch to Jackson-Dawson is a result of cost containment measures implemented by series management. Jackson-Dawson is a complete and independent entity separate from USARacing Inc. for the sole purpose of providing tires to USARacing competitors.
