Cup teams also ran this tire set-up last weekend at Richmond . . . this is Goodyear's intermediate tire set-up, and will be run on both Nextel Cup cars and Craftsman Trucks at Phoenix in 2006 . . . this combination has also been run by Truck Series teams at Gateway, Indianapolis Raceway Park, Mansfield, Memphis and Milwaukee this year . . . as on most NASCAR one-mile ovals, teams will not run liners in their tires at New Hampshire.
