GOODYEAR TIRE NOTES
NASCAR Nextel Cup Series -- Race No. 14 -- Pocono 500
Pocono Raceway (2.5-mile triangle) -- Long Pond, Pa.

Fast Facts for June 8-10, 2007

Tire: Goodyear Eagle Speedway Radials

Number of Tires: Left-side -- 1,600; Right-side -- 1,600

Tire Codes: Left-side -- D-4104; Right-side -- D-4098

Tire Circumference: Left-side -- 87.4 in.; Right-side -- 88.6 in.

Minimum Recommended Inflation: Left Front -- 20 psi; Left Rear -- 18 psi; Right Front -- 34 psi; Right Rear -- 31 psi

Estimated Pit Window: Every 29-31 laps, based on fuel mileage.

Notes: This is the first time that Goodyear has brought this specific combination of left- and right-side tires to the track . . . however, major NASCAR teams have run this left-side code (D-4104) at Phoenix and Richmond, and this right-side code at Bristol, earlier this season . . . Pocono is the only track at which Nextel Cup teams are scheduled to run these codes together in 2007 . . . as on all NASCAR ovals one mile or greater in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Pocono . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
