Napa, CA The Nitto Tires United States Touring Car Championship (USTCC) announced today that Honda Performance Development (HPD), a subsidiary of American Honda, will provide cash awards for teams competing in Honda cars in the USTCC in 2011.

It is fantastic to have Honda officially on board as a contingency program supporter. With Honda joining several other manufacturers providing cash awards for racing their brands, this could only be great news for teams wishing to race in USTCC, said Ali Arsham, USTCC Director.
