South Central Race Center is proud to announce that 2014 sees newly-crowned #1 plate holder Danny Kelsey returning to action again on Pirelli tires. Kelsey will campaign his RPSraceteam-prepared GSX-R1000 and GSX-R750 in the CMRA and selected WERA events. Kelsey was quoted as saying, “We came off a fantastic 2013 season with two lap records and winning the overall #1 plate. The Pirelli tires gave me the confidence to push my riding to a new level. The decision to stay on Pirelli for 2014 was a easy one to make.”

In a change for 2014, newly-inducted CMRA Hall of Fame rider Ty Howard will be campaigning his P1 Racing-prepared KTM RC8 aboard Pirelli tires. Howard has won numerous overall #1 plates and class championships while in route to those accomplishments, setting lap records at every track in the region. Howard said, "We did some testing and it didn’t take long to see how good the Pirellis were. We went very fast in conditions that were not very favorable. I’m excited to see what I can do in 2014 aboard Pirelli tires.”
