An American tire company founded in 1900, Bridgestone Americas is counted on to produce the best tires in the world, a distinction made possible from research gained through the company’s racing division, known as Firestone. Firestone tires made their first official racing appearance in 1909, and no tire brand has enjoyed more success in American racing than Firestone. Michelle’s connection with Firestone was cemented during her musical appearances at INDYCAR races over the years and her work as spokesperson for the Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation.
Firestone is the presenting sponsor for the documentary film “My Finish Line,” starring Sam Schmidt and Michelle Murray, which was filmed during the 2010 Indianapolis 500. The company has been instrumental in growing Michelle’s fan base through open wheel racing. Michelle is thankful for Firestone’s continued support of her music, the film and her 2013 tour, and is committed to representing Firestone to the best of her ability and to strengthening their mutual relationship.
