Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels has teamed up with Don Plesser and the PR Factory Store to create a new drag racing incentive program this season called the Pro-Street Six-Second Bounty.

Through this program, scheduled to begin April 8 at the Manufacturers Spring Cup event, the first Pro Street Class racer who achieves a six-second run in either the official qualifying or elimination rounds will earn the six-second bounty — entitling the racer to a $3,000 cash award, 10 MCR2 drag tires and a commemorative Mickey Thompson jacket.

All Pro Street Class racers participating in the Manufacturers Cup Series and MIROCK Superbike Series races using Mickey Thompson tires and displaying the Mickey Thompson logo are eligible.

“It is fantastic for us to team up with the PR Factory Store to create this very special program,” said Ken Warner, vice president of sales and marketing at Mickey Thompson. “It will be a thrill to watch this program unfold, and we are looking forward to an exciting year of motorcycle drag racing.”

The Manufacturers Spring Cup will be held Friday held at South Georgia Motorsports Park. The next eligible competition will begin April 30 at the MIROCK Superbike Series Spring Nationals.
