Notes: Teams in the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series will run  the same tire set-up at Homestead this week . . . Camping World Truck  teams will run the same left-side tire with a different right-side . .  . the Sprint Cup/Nationwide set-up is the same combination of left- and  right-side tires that teams in both series ran twice at Texas this  season . . .
