4th Year of partnership between the premier tire distributor and racing series
Rochester, NY – July 26, 2017: The Tread City Tire / Western New York Super Rod Association (WNYSRA) today proudly announced that Tread City Tire & Wheel, headquartered in North Tonawanda, NY, will remain as the title sponsor for the racing series for the fourth year running. The racing series, founded in 2014, highlights some of the best sportsman drag racers in the Northeast. As has been the case the previous 3 years, Tread City Tire & Wheel will be the official tire and wheel supplier of the racing series.
The Tread City Tire / Western New York Super Rod Association showcases competition in the International Hot Rod Association’s (IHRA) Super Rod category, one of the longest running sportsman drag racing classes in existence. Super Rod features a wide variety of full-bodied cars and street roadsters that run on a 9.90 second index in the quarter mile. All races are started using a 4-tenths of a second “Pro-Tree”.
Jason Oldfield, co-founder of the WNYSRA, stated, “We’re thrilled to have Tread City Tire & Wheel back as our title sponsor. Don Raiser and the entire staff at Tread City Tire & Wheel have been fantastic to work with over the past few years, and I’m grateful to have the opportunity to continue to educate the community about the unprecedented value Tread City Tire & Wheel offers.”
For over 25 years, Tread City Tire & Wheel has been providing Western New York customers with low prices and superior service on new and used tires and wheels. In addition to their standard services at their retail locations, Tread City Tire & Wheel also provides their unique mobile tire service, which is reflected in their motto, “We are the tire store at your door!” With these exceptional services, it should come as no surprise that Tread City Tire & Wheel quickly outgrew their original location in North Tonawanda, and has since expanded to 3 locations across Western New York, adding stores in both Lockport and Cheektowaga, NY.
Co-owner of Tread City Tire & Wheel, Don Raiser, and partners Tom & Sal Trigilio, had this to say about their partnership with the Western New York Super Rod Association: “Everyone at Tread City Tire & Wheel is excited about our continued involvement with the Western New York Super Rod Association. The WNYSRA features some of the closest, most exciting racing around, which the fans absolutely love, and we believe that they’ll also love hearing about Tread City Tire & Wheel’s guiding principles; great value in tires and wheels with top-notch customer service.”
In conjunction with this announcement, a points fund has been created in the Tread City Tire / Western New York Super Rod Association that will award more than $1,000 in cash to the top three points earners throughout the season. Jason Oldfield stated, “This would not have been possible without the support of Tread City Tire & Wheel. Our series champion will now have a substantial prize package to go along with bragging rights of triumphing over some of the best drag racers in the region.”
