Notes: This is the same combination of left- and right-side tires that Goodyear brought to Pocono in June . . . Pocono is the only track at which teams will run this exact combination this season . . . however, these left- and right-side codes will be used in different combinations at other Nextel Cup tracks . . . this left-side code (D-4104) is run at New Hampshire, Phoenix and Richmond, while this right-side code (D-4098) is run at Bristol in 2007 . . . 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.
