Did you know?--. In the last four national events at The Strip, Goodyear-shod cars have won 23 times, an average of 5.75 times per event. That is the best total in the tire industry.

GOODYEAR QUOTE: Carolyn Ashbee, sales and marketing manager for drag racing -- "The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway has been a special place for drag racers and their fans through the years. It provides excellent competition and the weather conditions are usually very good. In the past, championships have been won and lost here and that could happen again this year."
