Indianapolis is the only track at which teams will run this combination this season . . . this tire setup was tested at Indianapolis by Dale Jarrett, Jimmie Johnson, Bobby Labonte and Ricky Rudd in April . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one-mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Indianapolis . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
