ACT President Tom Curley announced last week that the ACT Late Model Tour will institute a brand-new Goodyear 8” tire for 2005. The new partnership will allow Goodyear to re-enter the Northeast Late Model scene in earnest after spending several years out of the general limelight. Greg Stucker, Goodyear’s Director of Race Tire Sales and Marketing, is very excited about the partnership with ACT. “By working with an organization as powerful as ACT, racers and promoters across the Northeast and across the country will take notice over the next year or two, and hopefully make the switch to Goodyear,” Stucker commented.
