Tire Type:

 

Tire Type – Hoosier 1320 Left, Hoosier 1330 right

 

  1. Teams will be allowed to buy a maximum of 9 tires at all series race tracks. You have to purchase 4 to 5 to race. The other 4 tires for practice and inventory is optional (5 tires for race and 4 for practice) All tires will be recorded. You don’t have to buy 9 tires.

 

  1. A total of five tires will be allowed in qualifying heats and feature (four plus one for change)

 

  1. Teams will be able to use any recorded tire in their inventory for spares in case of flats or wrecks (must come off track flat or damaged)

 

  1. Qualifying: The tires you race in the heat will be the tires you start feature with.

 

  1. Consi: Teams will be allowed to use any of their registered car numbered tires purchased in 2019 including the tires you attempted to qualify with. Your one new 5thchange tire purchased on event day will also be allowed for use in consi. Any team planning or intending to use tires from their 2019 inventory for the consi must bring said tires to tech officials prior to practice unmounted for inspection and approval for consi use. You must put your heat race tires back on for the feature. This will be fair for everyone as they will have the same laps on their tires for the start of the feature.

 

  1. Feature: You will be allowed to swap qualified tires from front to back to achieve proper stagger before or during the feature. You can only change one new tire. You will not be allowed to put on any other tires. Only if the tire is completely flat or damaged can you make an additional change with a 2019 inventory tire. Anyone caught tampering with tires will face disqualification. Remember…all tires are recorded. If you do not have the proper tires on after the heat race and feature race you will face disqualification and or a one race suspension if anyone is caught tampering depending on the infraction.

 

  1. ALL tires used in Heat, B Main and Feature MUST be purchased at track the day of the event.

 

  1. Tires can not be purchased from any tire suppliers… ONLY at track.

 

  1. You may pre order tires for all race events but they must be purchased at race track on race day for that specific event. Tires will be recorded at that time. Tires will be available race day for practice and race to anyone that didn’t preorder. Contact Dan@hoosiertireeast.comor by calling him at (860) 646-9646 to pre order tires for each race.
