Title: Goodyear to Introduce Smokeless Drag Slicks Citing Environmental Concerns

In a surprise move, Goodyear has announced that its research and development department has come up with a drag slick that produces no smoke when heated up. The company cites environmental concerns as the reason behind creating this new rubber polymer technology. The company has been developing this technology in secret for several years and is now ready to pull the wraps off of it.

“With the whole world trying to ‘go green’ these days, we thought it was time to help move drag racing in that direction,” said a Goodyear spokesperson. “Our engineers have developed a tire that acts just like a normal slick, but no matter how hard or long you spin it, it produces no smoke.” It’s said that the adhesion of tires remains like a normal drag slick and that cars as powerful as an NHRA top alcohol dragster have tried them. Under the condition on anonymity, a crewman with the car said, “These tires literally produce no smoke. They also produce no traction. It is like they are made of iron.”

When asked if he thought this would detract from the experience of fans at the drag races he said, “How can doing good things for Mother Earth detract from anyone’s enjoyment?”

The company plans to start this technology on their highest-end, professional-grade slicks and will work it down through the line of tires over the coming two years. There are no plans to introduce a drag radial style tire at this point and depending on the reception the “anti-smoke” technology will be used in their other drag tires.

Guess it’s time to smoke ‘em if you’ve got em’ because the days of smoke filled wheel wells and perfumed clothing from the drag strip are nearly done. (1 image)
