GOODYEAR QUOTE: Carolyn Ashbee, sales and marketing manager for drag racing -- "Route 66 has been the site of many historic firsts in drag racing and many of those achievements came on Goodyear tires. Because we frequently see record-setting performances at the track, Goodyear can gather a great deal of technical information about tires during a race weekend there."
