Notes: Teams in the NASCAR Sprint Cup, Xfinity and Camping World Truck Series will run the same Goodyear tire codes at Bristol this week . . . this is the same combination of left- and right-side tires that Sprint Cup and Xfinity Series teams ran at Bristol this April and teams in all three national series ran here last August . . . Bristol is the only track at which NASCAR teams are scheduled to run either of these two tire codes . . . unlike on most NASCAR ovals one mile or less in length, on which teams generally do not run inner liners in their tires, teams are required to run liners in their right-side tires only at Bristol . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
