HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – With a lot of the world going Green, the UARA-STARS Late Model Series is changing colors as well – to purple.
UARA officials announced today that in 2013 the series will be changing tire brands, switching to Hoosier rubber.
“Starting in 2013 the UARA will switch tire manufactures going from Goodyear to Hoosier,” said UARA president Kerry Bodenhamer.
Goodyear has been the official tire of the UARA since the creation of the series in 2001.
“The UARA would like the thank Scott Junod and the fine folks at Goodyear for all the years of fine service, product and support,” Bodenhamer said. “In an effort to move the UARA forward we felt this change would be in the right direction for the series.”
The tire dealer for UARA will remain the MTP out of Hickory, N.C. The weekly tire will be the F45. The tire for bigger tracks will be announced later.
