Bridgestone, Dunlop, Michelin and Pirelli vendors say their race tire sales increased during this past weekend’s Willow Springs Motorcycle Club (WSMC) event at Willow Springs International Raceway.

“We had a record January. I was checking my records, and it may have been a record weekend (overall), but it was definitely a record January,” said Jerry Jirkovsky of California Race Tire Service, the Pirelli and Bridgestone vendor for WSMC events.

Racers Edge Performance’s Dale Kieffer, a Michelin vendor, said he also enjoyed increased sales at the January WSMC event. “I would say sales were up maybe 15-20 percent,” said Kieffer.

Sport Tire Services’ Dennis Smith, the Dunlop race tire vendor, said “We had an up weekend also. In fact, it was substantially better than December.”
