Notes: This is the same tire combination that Goodyear brought to Martinsville for the NASCAR Nextel Cup and Craftsman Truck Series races in April and the Busch Series race in July . . . teams in both series will run the same tire codes again this weekend, though the Nextel Cup tires will be branded "Goodyear Eagle" and the Craftsman Truck tires will be branded "Goodyear Wrangler" . . . this is the only track on which NASCAR teams will run this combination of left- and right-side tires this season . . . however, this right-side code (D-4044) is run on all four tire positions on NASCAR road courses in 2006 . . . as on all NASCAR ovals less than one mile in length, teams will not run liners in their tires at Martinsville.
