NeSmith Crate Late Model Tire Rule for the 2013 season
For the 2013 season WPMS will only allow the crate 55 tire for the NeSmith Crate Late models. We have made this decision based on our belief that the 21 tire is not a good fit at our speedway due to its shorter life on a somewhat abrasive track surface and to help our weekly racers curb the higher tire bill associated with the 21 tire. This will also make it a more economical class at WP...MS. We applaud Tim and the entire NeSmith crew for giving us a little flexibility in this area, the job they do is second to none. There has been some concern that this will promote tire doping of the 55's but rest assured we will be cutting and testing tires this season to ensure as level a playing field as possible. We will allow the crate 21 tire ON THE FRONT ONLY thru the July 6th weekend to allow guys time to burn up existing tires they have. We will also be raising the pay this year to $500 to win $75 to start, this class grew in 2012 and we think it has a lot of potential in the years to come.
