Attention WKA Manufacturer's Cup junior, senior racers, Zoom Zoom Nationals Tire Exchange Program announcement
07.02.2009 -- Junior and senior racers competing in the upcoming WKA George Kugler / Bridgestone Manufacturer's Cup Zoom Zoom Nationals at Road America on July 10-12 will be competing YKC compound Bridgestone tire. Bridgestone is offering an onsite exchange program for those competitors who wish to exchange their YHC tires for the new YKC compound. There is no cost to the competitor for this exchange.
To be eligible for the exchange program, the competitor must be registered for the Manufacturer's Cup event and must present their existing YHC tires in new, factory wrapped condition. The tires cannot have been mounted or show visible signs of improper storage. Tires will be exchanged on a one-for-one basis only and may not be returned for credit. Each competitor will be allowed to exchange a maximum of eight tires.
Competitors may make the exchange with Keith Freber at Margay Racing or Jamie Sieracki of Franklin Motorsports.
Competitors wishing to make this exchange must contact Margay Products, Inc or Grand Products, Inc no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, July 6 in order to insure an adequate supply of tires at the event. The distributors can be contacted at the following numbers:

Bridgestone and its distributors acknowledge the inconvenience caused by this mid-season changeover and are offering this exchange program to minimize the impact on the Manufacturer's Cup participants. For additional information regarding this program, please contact Keith Freber at Margay Products, Inc or Michael Tetreault at Grand Products, Inc.
Five lucky racers receive terrific prizes at Dexter Speedway Dirt Grand Nationals
07.02.2009 -- Briggs & Stratton has "stepped up to the plate" with generosity and support numerous times over the years at WKA events. The 2009 season certainly is no different, and it showed once again last weekend at the Jimmy Rivers Performance Works Grand Nationals for the Briggs & Stratton Speedway Dirt Series at Dexter (Ga.) Raceway.
Along with their support of Saturday night's Animal Heavy Money Race, Briggs also made five dirt racers extremely happy ones before the weekend's racing had even begun. At Saturday morning's drivers meeting, four 2500-psi Brute by Briggs & Stratton pressure washers were randomly drawn and awarded to Hunter Crone, Tanner S. Gray, Jason Kitzmiller and Alex Reece.
At that same drivers meeting, a Briggs 5550-watt, 10-horsepower portable generator was also drawn for, with the lucky winner being Stevie Stephenson, who also had a terrific weekend on the track with a feature win and a fine third-place finish to winner Chris Thompson and second-place Dustin McGraw in the Animal Heavy Money Race.
It's the fine sponsors and supporters such as Briggs & Stratton, and many others, who make the Speedway Dirt Series, and WKA's other four national touring series, possible.
