Teams in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series will run the same Goodyear tire codes at Charlotte this week. This is the same combination of left and right side tires that teams in both of these series ran at Charlotte last season, and that Sprint Cup and Camping World Truck teams ran last week. This left side tire code (D-4428) was run by these teams at Charlotte beginning in 2011. This right side tire code (D-4552) was also run by Sprint Cup and Nationwide teams at Darlington earlier this month. Normally, Goodyear's tires for Cup and Nationwide teams are branded "Goodyear Eagle," though throughout both of Charlotte's race weeks, all tires will be decaled with "Support Our Troops" as part of the Goodyear Gives Back program. As on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Charlotte. Air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
