Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels is again serving as the title sponsor of Lights Out 12.

Known as "The Baddest Small Tire Races in the World," the annual Duck X Productions event is set for Feb. 25-28 at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Adel, Georgia. Mickey Thompson has supported the event since 2009.

"Small tires equal big fun every year at Lights Out," said Tom Kundrik, motorsports manager for Mickey Thompson. "We know that fans and racers are itching to get back out to the track, and this early-season showdown is a great showcase for our ET Street Radial Pro line."

In years past, Lights Out has hosted an estimated 400 competitors in up to 10 racing classes, each with purses reaching as high as $10,000, as well as an exclusive Radial vs. The World class that offers a $20,000 prize to the winner.

Mickey Thompson’s ET Street Radial Pro is a purpose-built race tire for classes requiring P275/60R15 or P315/60R15 tires manufactured from size-specific materials. The race-only radial features next-generation construction designed to take more power for better launches and a reduced tread pattern for maximum traction.
