Notes: Teams in all three NASCAR series will run the same tire codes at Homestead this weekend, though the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series will be branded "Goodyear Eagle," while the Camping World Truck tires will be branded "Goodyear Wrangler". Tthis is the same combination of left- and right-side tires that teams in all three of these series ran at Homestead last season. Other tracks at which teams have run this exact tire set-up in 2011 have been Chicagoland (all three series) and Texas (Sprint Cup and Nationwide only). As on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required run inner liners in all four tire positions at Homestead. Air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
