Chris Rado Breaks Records at Three Tracks

Veteran racer Chris Rado of WORLD Racing broke the Unlimited FWD record at the Super Lap Battle finals on November 11th, with a time of 1.49.703.  Rado ran his Scion tC on Continental tires, the first result of a new strategic alliance between Continental Tire and Hoosier Racing Tire.  The previous record was set by GM and stood for five years, but Rado beat that by 1.615 seconds, making his the first FWD car to run under 1.50 at Buttonwillow.

“Rado is an outstanding, well-rounded driver and Continental is very excited to have him running our colors,” said Terry Smouter, manager of events, Continental Tire. “A broken record on the debut of these tires is outstanding, but following that with two more track records all in one week is historic. We look forward to more great things from him in 2010.”

The new partnership aligns Continental and Hoosier as strategic partners for advanced performance solutions and motorsports integration, including collaborative marketing, product development and implementation process.  Both companies will invest substantially into resources for the marketing, business development and delivery of specific products.

Super Lap Battle is presented by Super Street, Turbo & High-Tech Performance, Modified, Eurotuner, and Import Tuner magazines.
