Did You Know...This is the same tire line up Goodyear will supply the NASCAR Grand National Division, Busch North Series when that circuit races at Dover Downs International Speedway.

NOTES AND QUOTES:

** GOODYEAR TIRE NOTE:

Because this race is contested on a two-mile oval, inner liners will be required. Goodyear recommends the inner liners be inflated 12 to 25 psi above the recommended pressure of each tire position.

** GOODYEAR QUOTE:

Chad Fletcher , Marketing Manager:

"After NASCAR's request to have the Grand National Touring Division back on bias tires in 2003, Goodyear was pleased to be able to provide a tire to the Winston West Series this season that has repeatedly proven its performance at the grueling high banks of Dover Downs International Speedway. We are able to provide the competitors with a tire that can handle both the high speeds and loads encountered at California Speedway while also providing a tire that has handling characteristics that are easy to adapt to by being very forgiving to the driver and providing a good, responsive feel. The Winston West Series racers will use the same Goodyear safety shield inner liners at California Speedway that the Winston Cup and Busch Series teams will use."
