Notes: Both the NASCAR Nextel Cup and Busch Series will run the same tire codes this weekend at Daytona . . . this is the same tire set-up that Goodyear brought to this track in February . . . Daytona is the only track at which teams will run this combination of left- and right-side tires this season, though it is similar to the set-up run at the other restrictor plate track on the schedule (Talladega) . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in their tires at Daytona . . . the inflation in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
Goodyear Quote -- Mark Keto, Lead Engineer, Stock Car Racing: "This is the same set-up we brought to Daytona in February, when we had a great deal of success during the race. Since teams have that race under their belts, we expect similar, positive results this weekend."
