GOODYEAR'S NEW D2681 DRAG TIRE MAKES TERRIFIC DEBUT AT LAS VEGAS

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (April 17, 2010) -- Del Worsham grabbed the Funny Car pole on Goodyear's new D2681 drive tire for the NHRA's fastest categories at the SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Larry Dixon had the quickest pass of Saturday's sessions in Top Fuel, also using the new tire.

The D2681 made its competitive debut at The Strip. Worsham and Dixon made their quick passes on a hot, slick race track that challenged the teams during Saturday's final qualification sessions.

"As much as I don't want to tell the competition, we were on the new Goodyear tire and it really sticks," Worsham said. "Larry was on it, too, and it really sticks."

Both the D2681 and Goodyear's D2550, which was used in competition during the last two seasons, are available for use at Las Vegas. Most teams opted to use the D2550 Friday and Saturday, as they have the most data on that tire.

Both the new D2681 and the D2550 will continue to be available at the next NHRA race at Gateway International Raceway.
