Nextel Cup teams ran these tire codes at Richmond last weekend, while Craftsman Truck teams ran them at Gateway two weeks ago . . . other major NASCAR tracks at which this tire combination has been run this season are Phoenix, Milwaukee and Indianapolis Raceway Park . . . also, this left-side tire code (D-4104) was run twice by Nextel Cup teams at Pocono in 2007 . . . as on most mile-tracks in NASCAR, teams will not run inner liners in their tires at New Hampshire.
