Goodyear Quote -- Mark Keto, Lead Engineer, Stock Car Tire Development: "This is the most familiar tire set-up Goodyear will bring to the track in 2004, with Cup teams scheduled to run this combination a total of 10 times this season. As far as the track goes, Kansas is one of the 'new' tracks on the Cup schedule, and as the asphalt ages, the racing groove widens out and should make for more side-by-side racing."
