Firestone Racing have confirmed that they are bringing nearly 1,100 tires to World Wide Technology Raceway in Gateway St Louis for this weekend’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500.
The right side construction and compound are the same that were used here last year while the left side construction is the same as Gateway 2018 while the compound is new and softer than the one used last year.
Chief engineer with Bridgestone Americas Motorsports Cara Adams said:
The Firestone Race Tire Engineering team is looking forward to another exciting night under the lights at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway. For this year’s race, we’re bringing a right-side tire that features the same race-proven compound and construction as last year’s race, but we are pairing it with a newly-designed left-side tire. This year’s left-side tire has a new, softer compound with the same construction as last year. This new combination will deliver increased grip as the Indy cars race around the 1.25-mile oval.”
