Goodyear Quote -- Mark Keto, Lead Engineer, Stock Car Tire Development: "We brought softer compounds to Dover in 2003 and had two very competitive races, so we decided to keep those virtually the same for 2004. Going along with what we've done with many of our tire set-ups this season, we have also softened the construction on both the left- and right-sides at Dover."
