NASCAR truck series will use Wranglers

Nov. 14, 2003

Racers in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series will use Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.'s Wrangler LT tires.

"Goodyear's racing radial tires produced for the series will be re-badged from Goodyear Eagle to Goodyear Wrangler to further target our Wrangler brand," says Thomas Becker, marketing manager for Goodyear light truck and SUV tires.

The Wranglers used in the series will be identical to the Eagles formerly used, according to Goodyear officials.
