As Andy said, they had the first two spots, and Gus who won the event won the set as a drawing, removed his old tires and picked up 1-1/2 laps in a 5 min run. Got to say they really worked well on our smooth asphalt track with VHT.

Now I just have to get a set on my car as well!!!

Fun running with you guys as well!!!

Default SWEEP TIRES

Thanks to john lee for the sweep tires ! First time out with the car , and the tires worked good ! Once the different compounds come out it will be easier to tune the car .

I will have to say that the rim is sweet. Seen a chrome version of that on a real car. It would look really sweet in the woven carbon fiber texture.

I have to say, I was impressed in Denver. I won the tires in a drawing and couldn't believe the way they hooked up. Sweep tires for me. I will be using them for the Paris Memorial race in Vegas in Oct. I hope to have the same success I had in Denver. Nice job on the the new line of tires , Sweep "em.

Default Sweep tires takes first at Great Lakes Challenge

Hi all, I just wanted to let you know that I took first place at the Great Lakes Challenge this weekend using sweep tires. They performed great all weekend without any problems, they really hold up great. Also I would like to thank sweepracing USA for donating a few prizes for the race, I am sure that a lot of the gt guys are now going to want some sweeps, because a lot of them asked me about them, since I was the only one running them this weekend.
