John Sears of OutlawRadial.net has been hard at work promoting his fast growing race series for the past few seasons. As most promoters have found, it means endless hours of chasing sponsors for the much needed support for the racers. X275 as it has been dubbed is stepping up big for the racers in the 2010 season along with some major support from sponsors. Just judging by the recent success of the X275 versus the 28×10.5 slick class, this season should be packed full of wheel standing, crowd pleasing performances along with plenty of stellar numbers. There were quite a few racers who have dropped into the 4-second zone on the 275 tire.
While at the ORTC Race John Sears was introduced to Ton Kundrik of Mickey Thompson by Tim Lewis. Tom was aware of John’s intentions to continue to grow the X275 Shootout Series and wanted to know what Mickey Thompson could do to help. The series will race at two venues this season, Maryland International Raceway and Virginia Motorsports Park combining for a total of thirteen races.
In a release from OutlawRadial.net and John Sears,
I would like to thank Carl Robinson and Tom Kundrik of Mickey Thompson for their support and to Jason Miller of MIR and Marc Wessler
of VMP for their continued support of the Xtreme 275 Drag Radial Shootout series.
Strap on a pair of 275′s this season and head to support one of the fastest growing racing organizations on the east coast. Could it be possible to have another invasion of the west coast come time for the World Cup at MIR? Just maybe Dave Bowman will mix things up once again like he did at the ORTC race in Georgia.
Just in is the new venture between yet another great company who has decided to support X275 for the 2010 season
Induction Solutions become the Official Nitrous Supplier of X275 Drag Radial at Maryland International Raceway and Virginia Motorsports Park for the 2010 season! Steve Johnson of Induction Solutions has signed on to become the Official Nitrous Supplier of X275 Drag Radial! Induction Solutions is an up and coming nitrous company that provides a multitude of products and services related to nitrous oxide including direct port installation, system flow mapping, and track-side tuning assistance. Johnson was looking for more exposure in the ever growing world of small tire racing and searched for a series where his products and services could be at the fore-front. The new X275 drag radial series run by John Sears of OutlawRadial.net at Maryland International Raceway and Virginia Motorsports Park was a perfect fit for Induction Solutions and a deal was made.
The series that features nitrous small blocks, nitrous big blocks and turbo/supercharged small blocks is the perfect setting for Induction Solutions as the Official Nitrous Supplier as well as an Official Contingency Sponsor. Many of the nitrous small block and big block combos that already run or are planning to run the series have Induction Solutions systems or components in place and will be able to take advantage of the generous contingency program set up by Sears and Johnson. Each racer that has an Induction Solutions system(s)will be eligible for contingency of $100 for a win and $50 for a runner up as long as they have the Induction Solutions decals on the side windows and are able to provide their Induction Solutions system number to confirm that the system has indeed been purchased through the company. As an added bonus Induction Solutions has also agreed to provide one nitrous bottle to the MIR X275 points champion and one nitrous bottle to the VMP X275 points champion. (Champion, or highest finishing nitrous car). John Sears would like to add his thanks to Steve and Induction Solutions for their support and plan on making 2010 a year to remember in X275 Drag Radial.
