Tire Rack continues its partnership as the title sponsor for a
17th consecutive year.
The 2018 Tire Rack One Lap of America will be the 35th running of the charitable, extreme challenge, street-legal road rally race for driving enthusiasts. It is an event of endurance and vehicle preparation. Featuring eight days of competition between many of North America’s fastest street-legal cars, the teams will compete in 18 timed competition events over 3,000+ miles during a week of skid pad, autocross, drag strip, racetrack and highway transit. Teams are self-managed, have no support crews and have to finish on the same set of tires on which they start.
“Tire Rack is proud to celebrate 17 years of a partnership with the Yates family as title sponsor of the Tire Rack One Lap of America,” said Matt Edmonds, executive vice president, Tire Rack. “With four decades of experience in the tire and wheel industry, we feel passionate about continuing to support and educate drivers from all experience levels about the capabilities of their tires and how proper maintenance, traction, safety and durability can be maximized on and off the track.”
Outside of the performance aspect of the event, the Tire Rack One Lap of America’s focus is on charity. Many drivers race for a cause and they are as varied as the drivers’ personalities. But the official event charity is The Brock Yates Tribute Fund, created in 2013 to support Alzheimer’s awareness and to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association.
Competition begins at Tire Rack in South Bend, Indiana on Saturday, May 5th when Tire Rack hosts One Lap of America competitors to a Wet Skid Pad Challenge before they begin their week-long trek. Competitors return to Tire Rack for the final event on Saturday, May 12th for a Dry Skid Pad Challenge followed by the famous burnout celebration.
Spectators are welcome to visit Tire Rack in South Bend, Indiana to see the cars and watch the skid pad events. Admission and parking are free.
