“One of the most exciting developments in recent years was the introduction of Multi-Zone Tread tires in 2013,” Grant added. “First raced at Atlanta, it’s a concept with enormous potential. Based on the success we experienced, we’re investing capital in our manufacturing process to expand the use of Multi-Zone Tread in 2014 and beyond.”
