Notes: While teams in all three NASCAR series in action at Dover this week will run the same right side tire code (D-4440), teams in the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series will run a different left side code (D-4556) than those in the Camping World Truck Series. This is the same combination of left and right side tires that Sprint Cup and Nationwide teams ran at Dover last season. These teams have also run this right side tire code (D-4440) at Kentucky in 2011 and 2012. Dover is unique among NASCAR ovals one mile or less in length, in that inner liners are required on all four tire positions. Air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.
