Goodyear Quote -- Mark Keto, Lead Engineer, Stock Car Tire Development: "We first tested this construction here last July with Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart. Comparing what Goodyear has previously run at Loudon, this year's right-side compound is the same while the left-side compound is softer. The overall construction is also softer, continuing what we've done with the entire 2004 tire lineup."
