DID YOU KNOW? Goodyear's first victory in a six-hour race at Watkins Glen International came July 21, 1973 when Henri Pescarolo and Gerard Larrousse drove their Matra Simca 670 to victory in a World Manufacturers Championship series race.

GOODYEAR QUOTE: Bob Shaffer, marketing manager, sports car racing -- "We will bring the same, proven tire combinations to Watkins Glen that we've supplied the Daytona Prototype class all season. We'll supply two compounds for dry weather and bring our wet weather compound as well. We have a great history of success at The Glen, dating back to the World Sports Car Championship and World Manufacturers Championship days and that experience is a great help to us now, both at The Glen and other tracks the Rolex Sports Car Series travels to."

GOODYEAR TIRE NOTE: Goodyear is the exclusive tire supplier for the Daytona Prototype class.
