Notes: This will be the fourth straight NASCAR Winston Cup race that Goodyear has brought this combination of left- and right-side tires to New Hampshire . . . both the Winston Cup and Truck Series will run the same tire codes this week . . . in addition to being used at New Hampshire in 2003, NASCAR teams have also run this combination earlier in the season at Richmond (including last weekend for both Winston Cup and Truck Series teams) and will run them again at Phoenix on October 31-November 1 . . . as on most NASCAR ovals one mile or less in length, teams will not run inner liners in their tires at New Hampshire.

Goodyear Quote -- Mark Keto, Lead Engineer, Stock Car Tire Development: "After they repaved the corners at New Hampshire in the off-season, Winston Cup teams came here to race in July and the track came through with good reviews. On top of that, our tire set-up, which we first brought here in July of 2002, responded well as expected. The nice thing teams will have this weekend is that they just ran this combination last week at Richmond, so they should be very much in tune with how these tires work."
