Nextel Cup and Craftsman Truck teams have previously run this tire setup at California and Dover during earlier companion weekends . . . truck series teams have also run this combination at Kansas . . . in addition, this left-side code (D-4078) has been run with a different right-side code by Cup teams at Texas in April . . . while this left-side code is new to the Goodyear tire lineup for 2007, this right-side code (D-4062) was run at Michigan, Dover and Kansas in 2006 . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Michigan . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
