Leading the small tire category with its ET Street Radial Pro line, Mickey Thompson has supported the annual event since 2009. This year’s races are set for Feb. 13-16 at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Adel, Georgia.
“The largest small-tire radial drag race in the world is back, and we wouldn’t miss it,” said Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing, Mickey Thompson. “As always, the event promises to provide a unique brand of motorsports excitement for racers and spectators alike and is a great showcase for our ET Street Radial Pro line.”
Lights Out hosts an estimated 400 competitors over 10 racing classes, each with purses reaching as high as $10,000, as well as an exclusive Radial vs. The World class that offers a whopping $50,000 prize to the winner.
Last year’s Radial vs. The World final saw Alex Laughlin drive his Corvette to victory over Daniel Pharris in a Mustang.
Mickey Thompson’s ET Street Radial Pro is a purpose-built race tire for classes requiring P275/60R15 or P315/60R15 tires built from size-specific materials. The radial features next-generation construction designed to take more power for better launches, a reduced tread pattern for maximum traction, and is for racing only – not street use.
