Notes: Speedweeks '08 is the first time that teams in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will be running these tire codes . . . the change from last year's tire set-up was brought on by the change in car style, with this being the first time the "Car of Tomorrow" is being raced at Daytona . . . the tire combination run by Sprint Cup teams is different than the one to be run here by NASCAR Nationwide and Craftsman Truck Series teams this week . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Daytona . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.

Goodyear Blimp: Goodyear's "Spirit of Innovation," based out of Pompano Beach, Fla., will be covering the NASCAR races at Daytona this weekend.
