Notes: Teams in all three NASCAR series will run the same Goodyear tire codes at Daytona throughout Speedweeks . . . this is the same combination of left- and right-side tires that these teams have run at Daytona since July 2013 . . . Xfinity and Camping World Truck teams have also run this tire set-up at Talladega over that same span . . . Sprint Cup teams ran this set-up at Talladega for two races -- October 2013 and May 2014 -- before changing the right-side tire at that track last October . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Daytona . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
Goodyear Blimp: Goodyear's "Spirit of Innovation" airship, based out of Pompano Beach. Fla., will be in the air over Daytona International Speedway throughout Speedweeks . . . the ship will be a part of television coverage for the Sprint Unlimited and Sprint Cup qualifying during the first week, and the Budweiser Duels and the Camping World Truck, Xfinity and Sprint Cup races during the second week.
