GOODYEAR TIRE NOTES

NASCAR Nextel Cup Series -- Race No. 30 -- UAW-Ford 500
Talladega Superspeedway (2.66-mile oval) -- Talladega, Ala.

Fast Facts for October 5-7, 2007

Tire: Goodyear Eagle Superspeedway Radials

Number of Tires: Left-side -- 900; Right-side -- 900;

Tire Codes: Left-side -- D-4082; Right-side -- D-4084

Notes: This is the first time that Goodyear has brought these two tire codes (left-side: D-4082; right-side: D-4084) to the track . . . the change from the spring race at Talladega (April 29) came mostly as a result of NASCAR deciding to run the "Car of Tomorrow" at the superspeedway this time around . . . also because of that, Nextel Cup teams will be running different tire codes than Craftsman Truck teams this weekend . . . this is the only race remaining on the 2007 Nextel Cup schedule at which Nextel Cup teams will run this tire setup . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Talladega . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
