This is the same combination of left and right side tires that teams in these two series ran at New Hampshire last year. This tire set-up was confirmed at a Goodyear test at New Hampshire on May 14-15. Drivers and teams participating in that test were Clint Bowyer in the No. 15 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota, Jeff Burton in the No. 31 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet, Jeff Gordon in the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet, Matt Kenseth in the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota and Joey Logano in the No. 22 Penske Racing Ford. As on most NASCAR ovals one mile or less in length, teams will not run inner liners in their tires at New Hampshire.
