Anderson, Indiana – Anderson Speedway and Hoosier Racing Tire have entered a multi-year partnership as the tire of choice for the Little 500 sprint car race held annually on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.
With the 2015 event set for May 23rd, Speedway President Rick Dawson is ready to begin the historic 67th consecutive race alongside Hoosier Tire.
“The Pay Less Little 500 has evolved into such a huge spectacle in sprint car racing,” stated Dawson. “It’s a fantastic opportunity to not only showcase our racers, but also our speedway and the city of Anderson.” With Hoosier’s commitment to quality and performance it comes to no surprise as to why Dawson picked the purple brand. “Hoosier Tire is a pioneer in their industry placing themselves at the forefront of racing,” continued Dawson. “They are constantly challenging themselves to improvement and what they provide our racers here in Anderson is unmatched.”
“I’ve been going to the Little 500 since the early 80’s and I always enjoyed this one-of-a-kind-event,” said Hoosier Racing Tire Oval Asphalt Business Unit Manager Irish Saunders. “Hoosier is proud to be a part of this great event and tradition.”
The Little 500 begins with practice on Tuesday, May 19th followed by two-day qualifying.

LOUDON, N.H. (July 14, 2014) – The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) made its first stop of the season at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend. Justin Allgaier qualified 25thfor his first NSCS start at the 1.058-mile track. After an accident in the final laps of the race, Allgaier drove his damaged No. 51 AccuDoc Solutions Chevy to the garage and finished 37th for HScott Motorsports.
Under ominous skies, the 301-lap race began on Sunday afternoon. Allgaier started from the 25th position and fought a loose car going into the corner and tight off of the corner. Crew chief Steve Addington called for changes all day during pit stops to improve the handling on the No. 51 AccuDoc Solutions Chevy. After going one lap down during the race, Allgaier was the beneficiary of the free pass when the fifth caution of the day came out at lap 213. Allgaier came down pit road and Addington called for more changes on the AccuDoc Chevy. He restarted in the 26th position on lap 219 and worked his up to the 23rd position on lap 233. After a long green-flag run, Allgaier was in the closing laps of the race when there was contact with another competitor and he slid up into the wall, which ended his day prematurely. Allgaier was relegated to a 37th-place finish for HScott Motorsports.
Justin Allgaier on New Hampshire Motor Speedway:
“We put together a solid weekend and the guys at HScott Motorsports prepared a great AccuDoc Chevy. Unfortunately, I got in an accident at the very end of the race and we went from having a solid day to having a wrecked racecar. We are putting together good cars, but just need the finishes to show for it. We have an off weekend, and I’ll use that time to get ready for the last half of the season.”

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 6, 2014) – The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series returned to Daytona International Speedway (DIS) for the second and final time of the season. Unfortunately, rain was the theme at DIS. The No. 51 AccuDoc Solutions team was able to complete one of two practice sessions on Thursday evening after rain cancelled final practice. More rain on Friday caused knockout qualifying to end prematurely. Allgaier and the No. 51 team earned the 31st starting spot for the Coke Zero 400. What was supposed to be a Saturday night race at DIS, was delayed until Sunday at 11 a.m. due to rain. Once the race finally started, Allgaier worked his way forward at the 2.5-mile superspeedway. After narrowly avoiding an accident early on, Allgaier was caught up in the second big may lay of the day on lap 99. After a torrential downpour, NASCAR called the scheduled 160-lap race at lap 112 and Allgaier and the No. 51 AccuDoc Solutions Chevy finished 25th for HScott Motorsports.
Pictured is Johnny Summers along with Justin, Dorothy and Mike Allgaier. Johnny retired last week as Store Manager at Hoosier Tire Midwest Brownsburg, IN. facility last week and enjoyed his first days of retirement by trekking to Daytona Beach to enjoy the races with the Allgaier Family.
Once a light rain moved over DIS on Sunday morning, NASCAR waved the green flag. Shortly thereafter the caution flag waved on lap seven for precipitation, ultimately bringing out the red flag. Allgaier radioed in that his AccuDoc Chevy was really good. After a 26-minute delay, the green flag waved once again. The first accident of the day involving 16 cars happened on lap 21 and Allgaier narrowly avoided the carnage. Under the caution crew chief Steve Addington called him down pit road for fuel, four tires and adjustments. After restarting in the 16th position on lap 29, Allgaier continued to work his way forward and was as high as the 10th position at one point. After two quick debris cautions, Allgaier was caught up in the second big accident of the day on lap 99. The No. 51 AccuDoc Solutions Chevy received major damage and crew chief Steve Addington determined the car was not fixable. The race returned to green for six laps after Allgaier’s accident and was eventually called due to rain. Allgaier finished in the 25th position in the No. 51 AccuDoc Chevy for HScott Motorsports.
Justin Allgaier on Daytona International Speedway:
“Rain and more rain was the theme of the weekend at Daytona [International Speedway]. The rain cut our practice and qualifying time short and delayed the race as well. Once we finally got going today, we had a great AccuDoc Chevy. I was just consistently making my way through the field and trying different things to get ready for the end of the race. Unfortunately, we got caught up in a big accident and it ended our day early. There was nothing else I could’ve done to avoid the wreck. I was able to slow down but someone plowed in to the back of me. It was just a product of superspeedway racing.”
