Notes: This is the third race this season that Goodyear has brought this exact combination of left- and right-side tires to the track. The Nextel Cup and Busch series ran this setup very successfully at Texas in April. As on all ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Texas . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
