March Madness Means Autocross Season is Coming!

Our hometown Notre Dame Fighting Irish are known for their football team, but that may be changing after Notre Dame's amazing comeback victory over North Carolina in the ACC Tournament. What a game! Many of us at Tire Rack can't wait to see how the Irish do this week in the Big Dance.

And with March Madness here, you know what that means...autocross season is just around the corner. If you would rather zip around pylons instead of dribbling through a full court press, it's time to start prepping your car.

With the recent class and rule changes, SCCA Street and Street Touring competitors must run tires with at least a 200 UTQG. With these new rules, consider the following 200 UTQG Extreme Performance Summer for the upcoming season: the new Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R, the new BFGoodrich g-Force Rival S, Dunlop's Direzza ZII Star Spec and the Hankook R-S3 (Version 2).

We'll test the newer tires against their peers in May, so stay tuned for results. And, while we may not be able to help with your bracket, we've got the tire information you need!
