"Drag racing is an important part of what we do, and who we are," said Ken Warner, vice president of marketing, Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels. "We offer a complete line of competition tires for racers on two and four wheels, and we certainly don't plan on slowing down anytime soon."

The company will continue its role as a contingency sponsor for all NHRA Sportsman racing classes, as well as Pro Mod and Pro Stock Motorcycle, and is title sponsor of the 10-event Mickey Thompson Tires Top Fuel Harley Drag Racing Series.

Mickey Thompson will also serve as a Divisional Level Associate Contingency Sponsor of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series in all Sportsman classes and will support NHRA racers through the popular Team M/T program.
