“During the course of the 2007 season, the feedback we were getting from our SK Modified® competitors was pointing us in the direction of going with a tire rule for the 2008 season,” said SMS COO/GM Mark Arute. “Once the season was over, we consulted with our tech staff to put together a tire rule based on the competitor feedback we had received. Once we had something put together on paper, we sent it out to our SK Modified® and SK Light competitors for their review, and the response from our competitors has been overwhelmingly positive. The tire rule is still in its infant stage and we will continue to work with our competitors and make any necessary adjustments as go forward into the 2008 season.”
