NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race At Michigan International Speedway
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 15, 2012) â€“ Goodyear will make a tire change for Sundayâ€™s Quicken Loans 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Michigan International Speedway. The decision was made Friday evening after teams had tires that were blistering following Fridayâ€™s practice sessions at the newly-repaved 2.0-mile track.
Goodyear will bring a tougher left side tire from Charlotte that the teams will use in Sundayâ€™s event. The teams will qualify Saturday as scheduled at 1:10 p.m. ET with the tires previously allotted by Goodyear. Following the NASCAR Nationwide Series race, the teams will be given a 75-minute practice session with the new left side tires that will start at approximately 6 p.m.
â€œWith the new repave here at Michigan, coupled with the high temperatures weâ€™re seeing this weekend, we feel this change will help us put on the best race possible on Sunday,â€ said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR Vice President of Competition.
