Goodyear’s new 17-inch stock car tire may be delayed

Goodyear's long-proposed new 17-inch stock car tire, considerably wider and taller than the current NASCAR tire, is apparently on hold for a while. It was to have been tested this week at Richmond International Raceway by one of Jack Roush's Ford teams, but the Greg Biffle-Greg Erwin team, which was to have been the testing team, has had to back out, in order to test their own stuff for the current championship chase. Erwin says the 17-inch tire, even if successfully tested, almost certainly would not be used on the NASCAR tour in 2010, because it would force teams to complete change car designs and setups.
