BF Goodrich Selected to Be Official Tire for NASCAR Euro Series
The NASCAR Whelen Euro Series is an official NASCAR stock-car racing series based in Europe. Before it was sanctioned by NASCAR, it was known as Racecar Euro-Series. BF Goodrich has a strong history in motorsports as was the first American race tire to score a win at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1915 and also built the first radial racing tire in 1972. They introduced radial tires to stock car racing in the United States during the 1990s when most series still raced on bias-ply tires. Now most every series competes on radials tires
