Goodyear Quote -- Mark Keto, Lead Engineer, Stock Car Racing: "This is the most popular tire set-up Goodyear will bring to the track in 2004. With teams having run these codes six times already this season, including at Fontana in May, they should have plenty of good notes to work from, and know what to expect from these tires."
