Dover is the only track where this same tire set-up will be used in 2003, though NASCAR teams will run this right-side code (D-6372) with a different left-side code (D-6352) at Charlotte, Kansas and Kentucky . . . teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Dover . . . the air pressure in the inner liners must be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
Goodyear Quote -- Mark Keto, Lead Engineer, Stock Car Tire Development:
"Goodyear introduced this particular tire set-up at this race one year ago. The tires performed very well at that time, so much so that this relatively new right-side code was also designated to be run at Charlotte and Kansas City in 2003. This being the third race for these tires at Dover, teams should be very comfortable with how they respond to changes and how they hook up to the tough, concrete surface."
