Wheel Service

Champion Tire and Wheel

Champion Tire


NASCAR is big business in North Carolina. One unusual business is Champion Tire and Wheel located in Cornelius, NC.

A single NASCAR team owns about 260 wheels. Keeping track….storing….transporting the wheels is so involved that NASCAR teams contract the “wheel service” to companies like Champion.

An article in Photonics Spectra details how an image-based bar-code reader with a liquid lens module is part of a well-designed system to keep track of the race car wheels.


Sophisticated technology for a “wheel”.
