Goodyear Quote -- Mark Keto, Lead Engineer, Stock Car Tire Development:
"The track at New Hampshire has been repaved in the corners since last year, though the design has remained the same. Because of this, and the fact that we ran on these tires on basically new pavement in 2002 as well, we decided to come back with the same set-up. We've had good results with these tires since introducing them in 2001, so teams should have a good history on them in order to prepare for this weekend."
