Notes: This is the first time that teams in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series will be racing on these particular tire codes . . . this combination was tested by Ron Hornaday at Atlanta in December, and run by all series teams at an open house test at the track in January . . . Craftsman Truck teams will be running the same left-side code (D-4152) as those in the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Busch Series this week, but they will be running a different right-side (D-4156) . . . the other difference is that the Craftsman Truck tires will be branded "Goodyear Wrangler," while Sprint Cup and Busch Series tires will be branded "Goodyear Eagle" . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Atlanta . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
