Radial Tire of Silver Spring and Toyo Tires to Sponsor Summer Sprints

2 July 2001 Radial Tire of Silver Spring, Maryland and the Washington, DC Region of the Sports Car Club of America (www.wdcr-scca.org) announced today that on August 18-19, Radial Tire and Toyo Tires (www.toyo.com) would sponsor the Toyo Tires Summer Sprints presented by Radial Tire Company. The Toyo Tires Summer Sprints presented by Radial Tire Company will be the seventh of nine rounds of the 2001 Mid-Atlantic Road Racing Series (MARRS). "Radial Tire has always been behind the Region and we are very happy to have them on board as a sponsor," said Don Caldwell, Regional Executive. Caldwell added that "... Toyo Tires is a strong supporter of grassroots motorsports and we are fortunate to be involved with them."

Early rounds of the MARRS Championship have seen record turnouts of competitors. The April event had almost three hundred pre-entrants and the Racing for Reading MARRS drew over two-hundred seventy competitors. The Toyo Tire Summer Sprints presented by Radial Tire Company will mark the return of the MARRS championship to Summit Point Raceway. With most championships likely to be up for grabs, the Region is bracing for a large field of competitors.

Admission for the weekend is only $25 for a weekend pass or $15 for a Sunday-only ticket. Cars are on course by 8:30AM both days and the event goes on, rain or shine. There is no charge for camping and children under the age of 12 enter free. For more information, contact 1-888-660-5039.
