American Racer partnership with USMTS, USRA continues into 2023 and beyond

The United States Modified Touring Series has raced exclusively on American Racer tires since 2006, and with the signing of a new agreement with Race Tires America, Inc., the American Racer® brand will continue as the Official Tire of the USMTS and USRA through the 2023 season and beyond.

“American Racer has been a great partner for us and they provide a lot back to our racers,” said USMTS President Todd Staley. “We are glad to extend our agreement for the long term and help keep the American Racer brand strong everywhere we race.”

American Racer tires are built by hundreds of men and women who know the four tires under every race car are crucial to performance in competition, so they take what they do very seriously.

American Racer tires are designed, developed and marketed by Race Tires America, Inc.—a division of Specialty Tires of America. They are a performance-driven, responsive company that is committed to continuously improving the quality of their products.

Their racing tires are state-of-the-art and designed for performance, durability, repeatability and consistency. They are second to none in an industry that is ever-changing, and American Racer is committed to the industry.

Expect innovation. Expect quality. Expect value. Expect success.

HISTORY: The McCreary Tire and Rubber Company was founded in 1915 in Indiana, Pennsylvania, to provide tires to an exploding automotive aftermarket. McCreary built a reputation for quality workmanship and continued to grow as a premium brand in the passenger, light truck, and medium truck tire markets.

In the 1960s, McCreary entered the race tire market. Throughout the 1970s and ’80s, McCreary race tires continued to grow its market share and maintained a reputation of providing performance excellence on the race track, while economic conditions in the replacement tire market generally forced niche manufacturers to restructure their business models.

In 1992 McCreary changed its name to Specialty Tires of America. The new name better reflected the change from a manufacturer of commodity replacement tires to a company with a broader, more specialized product offering. This specialization allowed the company to increase its focus on product quality and performance excellence. In 1994, as part of the revitalization of the company, the American Racer brand was introduced.

Today, after more than 50 years of racing tire design and manufacturing, American Racer tires are raced around the globe on virtually every type of racing vehicle.
