DID YOU KNOW? Jamie Bach and Guy Cosmo, drivers of the B-K Motorsports Courage/Mazda in the ALMS, got much of their open wheel experience on Goodyear tires in the Star Mazda Series presented by Goodyear.

GOODYEAR QUOTE: Bob Shaffer, marketing manager, sports car racing -- "Any time we compete at Mid-Ohio, it is important to Goodyear to do well, since the track is in our home state. We're looking forward to another great weekend. At Atlanta, we had no caution periods and some very close racing in the Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear. In the ALMS race, both the Intersport Racing and B-K Motorsports cars ended up on the podium in the P2 category. We're hoping for more of the same this weekend."

GOODYEAR TIRE NOTE: Most of the tires Goodyear will have on hand at Mid-Ohio will be for the Star Mazda Championship presented by Goodyear, as Goodyear is the exclusive tire provider for that series. That series uses Goodyear bias-ply tires. The tire lineup supplied for the Intersport Racing and B-K Motorsports in the ALMS race will include some new products from Goodyear's development program.
