GOODYEAR QUOTE: Carolyn Ashbee, sales and marketing manager for drag racing -- "Goodyear always looks forward to visiting National Trail Raceway, our "home" track, as it is only two hours from our race tire manufacturing facility in Akron. Many of our Tech Center employees and their families will attend the races to watch their products being tested to the limits. We expect an exciting, competitive field of cars in both the pro and sportsman classes, many riding on Goodyear Eagle Dragway Special race tires."
