Notes: Teams in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series will run the same Goodyear tire codes at Las Vegas this weekend. This is the same combination of left and right-side tires that these teams ran at Las Vegas last season. This is the only track at which these two tire codes are scheduled to be run in 2013. As on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Las Vegas. Air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
