Firestone, has just announced they will stay on with Indycar as the series tire supplier through the end of 2013. This after earlier announcing their exit from the series. Team bosses united and spoke with Firestone’s Al Speyer and an agreement was reached.
This is a spark of wonderful news for Indycar as next season they will debut an all new car and group of technical regulations. Having the stability of Firestone intact will make the transition all the more likely to succeed.
Indycar is a great series and offers wonderful access for their fans, here is a photo I took of Danica Patrick’s car going to the garage after the Bombardier-Learjet 550 at Texas Motor Speedway last summer. My Dad even got the set of valve stems off her car right after the race!
