Notes: This is the first time that Goodyear has brought this specific combination of left- and right-side tires to Texas . . . .however, Craftsman Truck teams did run this left-side code (D-4008) with a different right-side at Texas last season . . . truck teams did run this exact combination at Homestead in November 2006, and also ran the D-4008 left-side at California and Kansas last season . . . as on all NASCAR ovals one mile or greater 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.
