Bridgestone Americas, Inc.‘s Warren County, Tennessee and LaVergne, Tennessee truck and bus radial (TBR) tire manufacturing facilities were recently recognized by PACCAR with a 2018 Quality Achievement Award.

This award recognizes suppliers that meet or exceed PACCAR’s standard of 10 or fewer defective parts for every one million parts shipped to the original equipment manufacturer (OEM).

For more than 30 years, the Bridgestone Warren County and LaVergne plants have been suppliers of commercial TBR tires to PACCAR, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of medium and heavy-duty trucks under the Peterbilt, Kenworth and DAF brands.

The Warren County plant, which employs more than 1,000 people, is located in Morrison, Tennessee. In 2018, Bridgestone announced a $40 million investment in the plant to meet market demand and address emerging customer needs.

The LaVergne plant and its more than 1,000 employees have been recognized for several initiatives related to educations and environmental conservations and preservation.

Team Falken driver Justin Hall secured a first-place finish in the 4500 class racing with the Wildpeak R/T race tires in the 4500 class and Edwin Abd of ABD Motorsports took third in the 4400 class racing with the Wildpeak M/T race tires.

At the start of the event, Hall was unable to participate in the qualifying race due to one of his crank seals pushing out. To resolve the issue, he put silicone on it and let it set overnight so it would be good to go for the main races. Not participating in the qualifying heat put him behind the competition in the first heat. Team Falken said starting from the back was only a minor inconvenience for Hall. Throughout the whole race, the silicone held up well and Justin was able to pass the competition in the first heat, securing a first-place lead.
