Dunn Tire Partners with Continental Tire and Michael Shank Racing for Watkins Glen


2013 Grand Am Mid OhioPataskala, Ohio (June 20, 2014) – For the second consecutive year, Michael Shank Racing with Curb/Agajanian will be representing Dunn Tire in the Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen (June 29) at Watkins Glen International. Dunn Tire is the Official Tire Retailer of Watkins Glen International Raceway, and Continental Tire is the Official Tire of Watkins Glen International Raceway.

“Thanks to an introduction through Continental Tire, we started working with the Dunn Tire folks last year and I’m happy to have this program grow,” said team owner Mike Shank. “Now that they saw what was possible last season, we’ll be activating more aggressively ahead of the 6 Hour and then of course hosting a group during the weekend as well. It’s always cool to see the reaction of first-time guests for these IMSA events, and I’m happy that there was the kind of excitement last year that moved this program forward to do this again in 2014.”

The Official Dunn Tire Race Car will be on display next week between 12–4pm at the following Dunn Tire stores in the Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse areas:

Monday (6/23) – Dunn Tire West Seneca store (2150 Union Road)
Tuesday (6/24) – Dunn Tire Pittsford store (3400 Monroe Ave)
Wednesday (6/25) – Dunn Tire Camillus store (3690 Milton Ave)

Everyone is invited to come see this extraordinary car in person! Bring your camera… this is a great opportunity to get up close and take photos. During each timeslot above, Dunn Tire will be giving away complimentary weekend passes. The general admission tickets are good for all three days (Friday, June 27 through Sunday, June 29). This includes the Continental Tire 150 at The Glen on Saturday and the Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen on Sunday. Tickets will be given out on a first come, first served basis.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Dunn Tire to partner with Continental Tire and Michael Shank Racing,” said Patrick Logue, Managing Director of Retail Operations for Dunn Tire. “Watkins Glen International has a rich history right here in upstate New York and is very recognizable throughout the racing world.
