This year, Mickey Thompson has teamed up with Don Plesser and the PR Factory Store to create an exciting new program called the Six-Second Bounty. Through this special program, scheduled to begin April 8, 2011 at the Manufacturers Spring Cup event, the first racer who achieves a six-second run in either the official qualifying or elimination rounds will earn the six-second bounty.
The program is simple. All racers participating in the Manufacturers Cup Series and MIROCK Superbike Series races using Mickey Thompson tires and displaying the Mickey Thompson logo are eligible. The first racer to achieve a six-second time in the qualifying or elimination rounds will earn a $3,000 cash award, 10 Mickey Thompson MCR2 drag tires, and a special commemorative Mickey Thompson jacket.
“It is fantastic for us to team up with the PR Factory Store to create this very special program,” said Ken Warner, VP Sales & Marketing, Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels. “It will be a thrill to watch this program unfold and we are looking forward to an exciting year of motorcycle drag racing.”
The Six-Second Bounty program will officially begin on April 8, the first day of the Manufacturers Spring Cup event held at South Georgia Motorsports Park. http://www.manufacturerscup.info/11_0302.html
