The Steel Block Bandits Late Model Series welcomes Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic (HTMA) as its newest sponsor for the 2012 racing season. This sponsorship agreement not only benefits the series, but gives the series’ drivers added bonuses, as well.

HTMA will give one free tire to the highest finishing driver on Hoosier tires that finishes outside of the top five in each Bandits feature, this season. “So many times it’s the drivers that finish in the top five that get many of the perks; now, drivers throughout the field can benefit from this,” said Butch Mayo, co-promoter of the SBB Series.

Servicing racing teams since 1976, HTMA boasts locations in Baltimore, Md;  Bedford, Pa; and Pittsburgh, Pa. The Baltimore location is overseen by general manager, Bob Wirts. “We’re very grateful to Bob and Hoosier for all they’re doing for the series,” said Greg Keister, co-promoter of the SBB Series. “It’s gratifying to know that, on top of Bandits sponsorship, HTMA will be directly rewarding the drivers in our races,” he added.

Wirts and HTMA can be located online at The Bandits will be in action this Saturday, May 12, at Susquehanna Speedway Park in Pa., for a $1,500 to win, $150 to-start event.
