I heard a rumor going through the pits that Michelin's were not the FASTEST TIRE choice....
So I did a little research and here's what I found out.....

AT High Plaines Raceway

17 of the possible 23 records were set on Michelin Tires !!!
3 on Bridgestones
2 on Dunlops
and 1 I'm not sure....

Including the ABSOLUTE TRACK RECORD of 1:44.354 set by MATT LYNN on 5/9/09 on MICHELIN POWER ONE DOT RACE TIRES !!! (Yes, the same ones everyone gets when they walk up to our trailer)

Thanks to all of these Class Record racers for giving it their all and making Michelin the best tire choice to go really fast !!!!

The official records website has been updated now to include our last round at HPR. Here is the posting: http://forums.mra-racing.org/viewtopic.php?p=71056#71056

Two riders broke records: Rob Christman improved his own record in Open Endurance and Brian Johnson claimed a new spot in Middleweight Endurance. Don't know if this affects the specifics of any claims mentioned, but now all of the information is up to date.
