Notes: NASCAR Nextel Cup and Busch Series teams will be the same tire codes at Chicagoland this weekend . . . this is the first time that Goodyear has brought this exact combination of left- and right-side tires to the track . . . however, teams have run this left-side code (D-4060) earlier this season at Dover (both series) and Michigan (Cup only) . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams in both series are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Chicagoland . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
