DOVER, Del. — official release — The Rislone URC Sprint Series has announced plans to move to Hoosier Race Tires for the 2015 season.
The series has raced on American Racer tires for several years, but the decision was made to go in a new direction in 2015.
“Most if not all sprint car groups in our immediate area are on Hoosier and it only makes sense that URC drivers are on the same tire as the dynamics of scheduling races is constantly changing,” read a statement from the series. “This change allows URC drivers to increase their level of comfort on the Hoosier Tire and at the same time, allows other drivers currently competing on Hoosiers to possibly compete in URC scheduled events.”
The series has also confirmed that unlike in 2014, all URC events on the schedule will be full point races. In the past URC offered just flat or appearance points at designated races, but with numerous rain outs, many full point events were eliminated from the schedule this season.
