United Tire Will Sponsor Stock Car Series in 2017

United Tire and Service LLC will be a presenting sponsor for all races in The Super Cup Stock Car Series for 2017.

Super Cup Stock Car Series competitor Steve Harvilla is one of the founding members of United Tire, a group of independent tire dealers who operate 18 shops in southeastern Pennsylvania.

He says looks forward to showcasing the brand to a wider audience through the partnership from behind the wheel of the Bobby Gerhart Racing stock car, which he debuted at Lonesome Pine Racewayin Virginia in 2016.

Harvilla has been a member of the Bobby Gerhart Racing Team for the past 26 years and has assisted with the construction of the race cars and work in the pit crew. The Super Cup Stock Car series has allowed him to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a race car driver.

“I’m grateful to have been approached to be a presenting sponsor and that I am able to combine my passions both in and out of the office into one. Our team at United Tire is thankful for the opportunity,” says Harvilla.

Steve splits his time between the United Tire & Service stores in Lower Merion and Rosemont.

There are 16 more United Tire & Service locations across Pennsylvania’s Delaware Valley. On top of repair and maintenance for foreign and domestic cars, some stores specialize in classic car restorations, Jeep and 4WD modifications, high-performance work, commercial vehicles, and big trucks.

The Super Cup Stock Car Series formed in late 2007 as an affordable alternative to existing full-bodied stock car racing tours. The series features 600 horsepower, steel-bodied stock cars that were formerly associated with similar racing divisions. SCSCS enters its 10th full season of “Racin’ the Way It Used To Be!” in 2017 with events at pavement short tracks throughout the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic.
