BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Goodyear has called in more than 1,000 new tires to Bristol Motor Speedway to counter severe wear.
Goodyear decided Friday to bring in new tires from North Carolina because the tires failed to lay enough rubber on the track surface. Typically, as drivers run more laps, rubber grounds into the surface and alleviates excessive wear.
But it didn't happen after a full day of track activity Friday, even after the sun came out and the track surface got hotter.
The replacement tires for the Nationwide Series will be the same compound used at Bristol last year.
The Sprint Cup cars will use the same compound used at Kansas and California last season.
