</pre> GOODYEAR QUOTE: Carolyn Ashbee, Sales and Marketing Manager, Drag Racing -- "The rear drive tire for the Top Fuel and Funny Car classes is new for the race at Bandimere Speedway. It has been designed, as are all the tires we build for those classes, in conjunction with the NHRA, in this case to include an updated tread compound and bead."
