2015 Reedy International TC Race of Champions Spec Tire SelectionApril 24, 2015 -- The Reedy Race is proud to announce that the Sweep EXP EVO-R 36 (Part #EXP36RPP) has been chosen as the spec tire for the 2015 Reedy International Touring Car Race of Champions.
Lead test driver and Invitational class participant Rick Hohwart shared his thoughts about the selected tire: "Just like last year, the EXP EVO-R 36 proved to be as fast as any tire I tested while providing consistent performance from run to run even as the track conditions changed throughout the day. The tires are mounted and glued extremely well so no extra steps were required to make them race-ready. These tires are the perfect choice for a race of this caliber!"
Remember, each paid entry includes one set of marked and numbered Sweep EXP EVO-R 36 tires. Drivers will be allowed to purchase an additional three sets of marked and numbered tires for use as they please for qualifying and triple main events. There is no limit to the number of tires a driver may purchase for practice, but tires used during controlled practice seeding rounds must be marked tires purchased at the event. Tires for non-scored controlled practice rounds or pre-race testing can be purchased at the event or at www.sweepracingusa.com.

2015 Reedy International Touring Car Race of Champions AnnouncementFebruary 25, 2015 -- What started out many years ago as Mike Reedy's vision to showcase the world’s best drivers in a format unlike any other ever used in RC racing, has grown to be one of the most anticipated and prestigious RC races in the world.
