Goodyear to Hold Tire Test After Bristol Reconfiguration

Per, The Bristol project will be completed in time for Goodyear to come to Bristol for a tire test before the Aug. 25 Sprint Cup Series return.

Goodyear said it has scheduled a tire test for June 12-13.

"We will start out our test with the existing Bristol tire setup, in order to determine if the changes to the track surface require any changes to our tread compound formulation,'' said Stu Grant, Goodyear's general manager of worldwide racing.

"We'll then evaluate if the track surface has changed and if we'll need to bring back something different for the race in August.''
