Notes: Teams in both NASCAR series will run the same tire codes at Martinsville this weekend, though the Nextel Cup tires will be branded "Goodyear Eagle," while the Craftsman Truck tires will be branded "Goodyear Wrangler" . . . this is the same specific combination of left- and right-side tires that Goodyear brought for these teams to run at Martinsville earlier this season . . . this is the only track at which Craftsman Truck teams will run either of these two tire codes in 2007 . . . while Nextel Cup teams only run this exact combination at Martinsville, they did run this right-side code (D-4110) on all four tire positions at both road course races in 2007 . . . as on most NASCAR ovals one mile or less in length, teams will not run inner liners in their tires at Martinsville.

Goodyear Blimp: Goodyear's "Spirit of Innovation," based out of Pompano Beach, Fla., will be covering both races at Martinsville this weekend.
