Notes: This is the first time that Goodyear has brought this specific combination of left- and right-side tires to the track this season . . . when NASCAR Nextel Cup Series teams visited Pocono Raceway last month, they ran on this right-side code (D-4032) with a slightly different left-side code (D-4028) . . . teams also ran the D-4028/D-4032 combination at Las Vegas and Bristol earlier this year . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile 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.
