Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels Teams Up with PR Factory Store to Launch New Pro-Street Six-Second Bounty Program

STOW, OH – April 6, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  This year, Mickey Thompson has teamed up with Don Plesser and the PR Factory Store to create an exciting new program called the Pro-Street Six-Second Bounty. Through this special program, scheduled to begin April 8, 2011 at the Manufacturers Spring Cup event, the first Pro-Street competitor 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 Pro-Street competitors 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 eligible Pro-Street 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 Pro-Street 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 Following that event, the next eligible competition will be the upcoming MIROCK Superbike Series Spring Nationals beginning April 30. http://www.mirockracing.com/
