Speaking ahead of this weekend’s race, Firestone Racing’s chief engineer, Cara Adams said:

“The Firestone Race Engineering team will bring new, softer left and right side compounds to the 2018 DXC Technology 600. “Based on learnings from 2017, along with the results from our tire test in March, the new, softer tires are more heat resistant and will provide increased grip and greater drop-off over a stint.
