Kentucky to likely hold tire test Several top drivers and teams joined NASCAR and Goodyear officials at a two-day tire test of the newly repaved Daytona International Speedway last week.
There have been discussions about conducting a similar test ahead of Kentucky Speedway's first Sprint Cup Series race in July. That test could take place this spring, but with fewer cars.
"At Kentucky, we'll probably go with just three to four cars," said Greg Stucker, Goodyear director of race tire sales.
The Akron-based company is the exclusive tire supplier for NASCAR's top three divisions: Cup, the Nationwide Series and the Camping World Truck Series.
The Nationwide and Truck series have raced 21 times at Kentucky Speedway. Having that data in hand, and with additional information gathered from tracks similar to Kentucky Speedway, Stucker said Goodyear engineers would be able to make a tire recommendation for the test.
In the meantime, Goodyear will work with the speedway and NASCAR to set a date and identify teams to invite.
