Goodyear Tire Co. Closes Atlanta Motor Speedway Test Set for Tuesday

HAMPTON, Ga. (Sept. 15, 2008) -- The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company has closed its Tuesday, Sept. 16 tire test in preparation for October's Pep Boys Auto 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway, the seventh race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Kyle Busch, Travis Kvapil and Scott Riggs will participate in an intense, one-day test to finalize the tire selection for the Pep Boys Auto 500 on October 26.

"Due to the nature of Goodyear's one-day tire test here at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Goodyear is making it a completely-closed test to everyone except the teams," said Atlanta Motor Speedway president and general manager Ed Clark.

Unlike past tire tests, the Atlanta Motor Speedway infield area will be accessible to just team members of participating drivers and Goodyear employees.
