Goodyear plans to use California tire at Bristol in fall

Goodyear plans to bring the right-side tire that teams used in Sunday's race to Bristol in August. Goodyear officials brought a different right-side tire to Bristol last week, but it didn't rubber the track as quickly as hoped and caused tire issues. So, a different batch of tires was brought and Nationwide and Cup teams raced with those. Stucker said they're confident in the California tire and don't plan to test at Bristol before the August race. Goodyear is scheduled to test at Dover on April 19 to confirm the tire selection for that race. Goodyear is scheduled to test April 26-27 at Indianapolis with Juan Pablo Montoya, Martin Truex Jr., Kurt Busch, Trevor Bayne and the Richard Childress Racing team. Goodyear also is scheduled to test at Kentucky on May 17 in preparation for that track's first Cup race in July. Virginian-Pilot
