BOISE, Idaho - Shinko Tire USA has secured a partnership with Rickey Gadson and the Rickey Gadson Drag Racing School to be the exclusive tire brand used on Gadson's race bikes for the 2013 race season and for all motorcycles used at the school.
"I can't be more excited about kicking off the 2013 season with Shinko tires,” stated Gadson in the Shinko announcement. “Having their Hook Up tire on my turbo ZX14R tells me I have a winning combination already. Getting the horsepower to the ground won't be a problem with the help of the Shinko Hook Up tires because they are created for drag racing. After testing, I can really see the difference that Shinko can make."
“Shinko Tire is proud to be the official tire brand for Rickey this season. With his professional attitude and drive to win, we are confident that there will be many round wins and championships this season,” said Shinko representative Scott Casper.
Gadson will be at all MIROCK and Manufacturers Cup races this season, according to Shinko.
