Notes: Goodyear will offer tires with four tread compounds at the 50th Goodyear Knoxville Nationals presented by Lucas Oil, the same Goodyear compounds offered at Knoxville all season long...Most competitors will be familiar with the tires, since many touring and weekly programs use the same products...Track rules allow teams to use the available compounds in any combination on the four wheel positions...The rear tires mount on 15-inch rims and the front tires mount on eight-inch rims.

Goodyear quote: Justin Fantozzi, marketing manager -- "All of us at Goodyear Racing have been looking forward to this race since we signed the contract with Knoxville last year. We've had a tremendous start to the season with the touring series and the weekly race tracks. Our engineering has been spot on: Without exception, every track and sanctioning body has reported better racing with more passing than they've had in recent seasons."
