Ten years for Tire Rack One Lap of America

April 24, 2012

The Tire Rack is celebrating its 10-year anniversary as the title sponsor of the Tire Rack One Lap of America (www.onelapofamerica.com). The charitable street-legal road rally race was started 29 years ago by auto writer, Brock Yates.

The 2012 Tire Rack One Lap of America begins May 5 at Tire Rack's state-of-the-art 11.7-acre test facility in South Bend, Ind., and returns there for a final test eight days later on May 12.

During that week, drivers will race at tracks like the Autobahn Country Club in Illinois; the High Plains Raceway in Colorado; the road course and drag strip in Brainerd, Minnesota; and two days at the world-famous Road America in Wisconsin.

This year, more than 80 entrants will be covering over 3500 miles during the eight day competition.

"With nearly 33 years of experience in the tire industry, we feel passionate about continuing to support and educate drivers from all experience levels about the capabilities of their tires and how proper maintenance, traction, safety and durability can be maximized on and off the track," said Matt Edmonds, vice president, Tire Rack.
