Firestone tires made their first official racing appearance in 1909 when company founder Harvey Firestone put a set on a car driven by Barney Oldfield in the Indianapolis 300. During a test run for that competition, Oldfield told the assembled onlookers “my only life insurance is Firestone tires.” He and Firestone later had the phrase painted on the side of his racecar, and he toured the country “performing amazing feats of speed.” Firestone is the only tire brand to have appeared in every Indy Racing League contest, and has provided tires to 14 IZOD IndyCar Series champions. The IZOD IndyCar Series and the Firestone Indy Lights provide Firestone, known as “America's Tire Since 1900,” excellent showcases to demonstrate technology, along with the world's largest laboratory for testing and evaluating new materials and construction processes for street and highway tires. They also allow the brand to create more wins and more championships, contributing to the growing success of Firestone Racing.
Bridgestone Americas' corporate family traces its roots to two distinguished companies - The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company, which Harvey Firestone formed in Akron, Ohio in August 1900, and the Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd. which Shojiro Ishibashi started in Japan in 1931. Bridgestone Corporation purchased Firestone in 1988 for $2.6 billion, transforming the companies' combined operations into the world's largest tire and rubber company. The operations in the Americas were renamed Bridgestone/Firestone, Inc. and became the largest subsidiary of Bridgestone. As part of its integration with Bridgestone's existing U.S. operations, Bridgestone/Firestone moved its headquarters from Akron to Nashville in 1992.
