VEGA VAH (RED) IS SPEC TIRE FOR NORTHERN TOUR AT AVON
After speaking with several AKRA Northern Tour racers and teams, AKRA has determined the best route for the remainder of the 2017 Vega USA American Sprint Cup Series is to make the switch to the Vega VAH Red compound tire beginning with the series’ next event, Round 2 of the Northern Tour presented by Boon & Sons June 9-11 at Genesee Valley Kart Club in Avon, NY.
The Vega Red compound will be the spec tire beginning at Avon and for the duration of the 2017 season for all classes except TaG Junior, TaG Senior and TaG Masters, which utilize AKRA’s “limited” open tire policy.
