Notes: Teams in all three NASCAR national series will run the same tire set-up at Phoenix this week . . . this is the same combination of left- and right-side tires that Sprint Cup and Xfinity teams ran at this track in March . . . Goodyear reconfirmed this tire set-up at a tire test at Phoenix on October 12-13 . . . drivers participating in that test were A.J. Allmendinger, Kurt Busch, Matt Kenseth and Brad Keselowski . . . for Truck teams, they ran this left-side tire code (D-4612) at Phoenix last year, but this is the first time running this right-side code (D-4626) . . . compared to what the trucks ran here last fall, this right-side tire features a construction change and a compound change to enhance grip and help rubber-in the track . . . as on most NASCAR ovals one mile or less in length, teams will not run inner liners in their tires at Phoenix.
