Notes: This is the same combination of left- and right-side tires Goodyear has brought to Richmond since May 2002, making this the fourth straight race at the track with this set-up . . . other tracks where teams will run these tires in 2003 are New Hampshire and Phoenix . . . all three NASCAR series -- Winston Cup, Busch and Craftsman Truck -- will compete on the same tires this weekend . . . as on all NASCAR ovals less than one mile in length, teams will not runinner liners in their tires at Richmond.
Goodyear Quote -- Mark Keto, Lead Engineer, Stock Car Tire Development: "This is the fourth Winston Cup race weekend in a row for this set-up at Richmond, so the teams should have a good understanding of what the tire is looking for when they unload this week. The configuration of the race track lends itself to some of the best racing in NASCAR, so it should be an successful and entertaining tripleheader."
