2021 TIRE RULE

23
Feb

 

THE MIDWEST SPRINT CAR SERIES IS OFFERING ANOTHER TIRE OPTION IN 2021. AFTER MUCH DISCUSSION, IT WAS AGREED UPON TO ALLOW AN ADDITIONAL RIGHT REAR TIRE TO BE USED BY THE 410 NON-WING SPRINT CAR COMPETITORS. THE TIRE CHOICES WILL BE THE HOOSIER 105/16.0-15 MEDIUM OR THE RECENTLY APPROVED HOOSIER H15 SOFTER COMPOUND TIRE. THIS IS STRICTLY AN ADDITIONAL OPTION FOR DRIVERS.

IN ADDITION TO THE MSCS SERIES, A GROUP OF INDIANA SPRINT CAR TRACKS HAVE ALSO ADOPTED THIS SAME MODIFIED TIRE RULE FOR 2021. THESE TRACKS INCLUDE BLOOMINGTON SPEEDWAY, GAS CITY I-69 SPEEDWAY, KOKOMO SPEEDWAY, LAWRENCEBURG SPEEDWAY, LINCOLN PARK SPEEDWAY, PARAGON SPEEDWAY AND OF COURSE, TRI-STATE SPEEDWAY, THE HOME TRACK FOR THE MIDWEST SPRINT CAR SERIES.

A REVISION TO THE TIRE RULE AS PRINTED IN THE 2021 MSCS RULE BOOK:

MSCS SPRINT CARS MUST COMPETE FOLLOWING A FOUR CORNER SPEC TIRE RULE. THE TIRES APPROVED BY MSCS FOR USE ON THE RIGHT REAR OF THE SPRINT CAR ARE THE HOOSIER 105/16.0-15 MEDIUM OR THE H-15.  HOOSIER TIRES MUST BE USED ON THE OTHER THREE CORNERS.

ANY SOLVENTS AND/OR CHEMICALS APPLIED IN ANY WAY TO A TIRE THAT ALTERS THE CHEMICAL MAKEUP OF THE COMPOUND OR HAVE THE EFFECT OF ALTERING TIRE DUROMETER CONSTRUCTION IS PROHIBITED.

MSCS OFFICIALS RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SAMPLE TIRES RANDOMLY FROM ANY COMPETITOR THROUGHOUT ANY RACE EVENT. PENALTIES FROM A TIRE FOUND TO BE ALTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL FACTORY BENCHMARK SPECIFICATIONS ARE AS FOLLOWS:

·        CAR OWNER/DRIVER – 3 RACE SUSPENSION FROM ANY MSCS AFFILIATED EVENT

·        FORFEIT WINNINGS AND LOSS OF POINTS FOR THAT EVENT

·        FINE OF $1000 (TO BE PAID BEFORE ENTERING FIRST ELIGIBLE RACE AFTER SUSPENSION)
