Firestone Racing has brought more than 1,400 race tires to this weekend’s Grand Prix of Portland at Portland International Raceway.

Each driver will receive six sets of the Primary black walled tire while they will receive four sets of the Alternate red walled tire

The compound and construction of the tire are the same that was used here in 2021.

Cara Krstolic, Director of Race Tire Engineering and Production Bridgestone Americas Motorosports says:

The track at Portland International Raceway has a unique transition on turn one, adding to the excitement of the race. In terms of the surface, it is not a high degradation track with very mild weather in Portland making tire strategy imperative to a good performance. We are bringing the same primary and alternate tire compound and construction used at the 2021 Grand Prix of Portland.
