World of Outlaws and DIRTcar Racing Statement on the Passing of Joyce Newton
The World of Outlaws and DIRTcar Racing send their deepest condolences to the family and friends of Joyce Newton, who passed away Tuesday at the age of 85.
Joyce and her late husband Robert “Bob” Newton were true auto racing icons, creating the world’s largest racing tire company with Hoosier Racing Tire. Even after her husband passed away in 2012, Joyce continued to run the company until 2016, when the family sold the business to Continental.
“The Newtons supported the World of Outlaws and DIRTcar Racing for many, many years. We were happy to call Joyce and her late husband Bob friends. They will truly be missed,” said World of Outlaws and DIRTcar Racing Chief Executive Officer Brian Carter.
