    Dunlop Vendor


    Just got an email from Dunlop listing new track vendors. Didn't see Steve listed as one? Was wondering if anyone here knows what's going on?

    Steve is a great human. So is Kurtz, and Stowe for that matter. What is it about tire guys?

    They're always covered in lube and have a deep and abiding attraction to rubber?

    Steve Guinard retired this year. He actually received the Peer Recognition Award at the LRRS banquet for his 30(?) years of servicing LRRS racers.

    At the same time, the company he worked for also closed up shop, and the owner retired as well. Hence the shakeup and new vendors nationwide.

    Thanks, The last time I talked to Steve he didn't mention he was retiring, but I didn't attend the last race weekend or the banquet. Great guy sad to see him go.

    Interesting. I learned something today.

    Vender dictionary definition | vender defined

    Which is correct vendor or vender?
    Vender is an outdated spelling for the word vendor that is defined as someone who sells things. An example of a vender is a man who has a hot dog cart and sells hot dogs on the street corner.

    Re: Dunlop Vender

    Contacted the new Dunlop Vendor his response is below. He also said that the new website will be up shorty.
    His email is bemisderferracing@gmail.com

    Yes, I am the Dunlop vendor for the Northeast east region. NHMS is one of the tracks that I will service. There are a few conflicting dates but that will not effect service for Loudon. I plan to either be at all NHMS events or have the best representation available. I am very close to Steve and Fran and my goal is to continue the great service that they were so well known for. We’re still working on contingency plans, not 100% sure on that yet.




    Regards,




    Tim

    Re: Dunlop Vendor

    Always feel like most car tire guys are trying to screw me though. These tires seem worn for the mileage. Then I say oh I got them here and rotate them and they go quiet.

    Would rather by a set of two for my bike than four for my car Any day.
