NMS Rides on Bridgestone Tires!

The Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R in the wild!

A new tire brand was announced for both the NMS Miata and the NMS FIAT Abarth today at their regional test facility in Virginia Beach Virginia. The drivers of number 86 and number 77 have both chosen to go with the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R tires for the 2016 autocross season. This high performance Bridgestone model has proven to be the quickest tire in autocross (at the 200 UTQ rating required in Street class) and while we like having good excuses as much as the next guys, driving on the best tires sounded like the thing to do this year!

Ferrari Wheels at NMS? Not until we win the lottery!

A spokesman for the team was quoted as saying that "Yes, we won a lot of events and the Tidewater Sports Car Club G Street championship with the old Dunlop Direzza ZII tires, but based on the outstanding results of the Bridgestones, it was time to look for replacements, and the reviews and results of events across the country show that the Potenza RE-71R is the way to go!"

When asked if this guaranteed better results this year, an anonymous NMS team member whose name rhymes with Brian Nixon stated that "well duh, all the other drivers have good tires too, so to answer your dumb question, 'no'."
Your wheels and tires are a reflection of you!

Nixon Motor Sports further suggests that if you are in the market for tires, check out the brands and prices available from Tire Rack on line. We've found them to be the go-to source for tires, information about tires, and great customer service.
Sometimes it feels like the Wild Wild West out there!
