Notes: This is the second time that Goodyear has brought this specific combination of left- and right-side tires to Bristol . .

in addition to running this tire set-up at Bristol earlier this season, NASCAR Nextel Cup and Busch Series teams ran these tire codes at Las Vegas in March . .

unlike on other NASCAR ovals less than one mile in length -- where teams do not run inner liners in their tires -- teams are required to run liners in their two right-sides at Bristol . .

air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
