Notes: Teams in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series will run the same tire codes at Richmond this week. This is the same combination of left and right side tires that teams in both series ran at Richmond earlier this season. In fact, this tire set-up has been run at Richmond since the beginning of 2011. Sprint Cup and Nationwide teams have also run this left side tire code (D-4416) with a different right side code at Bristol in 2013. As on most NASCAR ovals one mile or less in length, teams will not run inner liners in their tires at Richmond.
