Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels announces their partnership with Billy Glidden Racing for 2009 season
Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels is proud to announce their partnership with Billy Glidden Racing for 2009. Through this renewed partnership, Glidden will continue to help Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels develop new performance products, and Mickey Thompson will provide financial support to Glidden to defend his ADRL Extreme 10.5 Class Championship.
“Working with Billy Glidden is amazing,” said Ken Warner, VP Sales & Marketing, Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels. “He works very hard, and drives like no other racer I know. We get reliable data from Billy that is used to develop and maintain the best high-performance products. Billy is part of the Mickey Thompson family and we want him to get out on the track and win.”
Billy Glidden started racing Pro Stock in 2007, and at NHRA National events with Mickey Thompson’s Tire Development Vehicle in association with their Big Tire Development Program in 2008. In mid-2008 Glidden dropped in a nitrous small block, and bolted on some new Mickey Thompson ET Drag tires, size 33.0/10.5-16W (#3169W). Glidden went on to win the 2008 ADRL Extreme 10.5 Class Championship. This was Glidden’s 13th Championship on Mickey Thompson tires!
“It’s great working with the folks at Mickey Thompson,” said Billy Glidden. “They really are like my extended family. Race enthusiasts know that I only use the best racing tires available, which are Mickey Thompson tires. I feel fortunate to have been part of the Big Tire Development Program, and look forward to another great year.”
