Speaking ahead of the event this weekend, Cara Adams Director of Race Tire Engineering with Bridgestone Americas Motorsports says:
Our Firestone Race Tire Engineering team designs tires to meet the performance demands of various tracks, surfaces and racing conditions across the NTT INDYCAR SERIES season. This includes designing Race tires that can manoeuvre around the 2.3-mile road course at Barber Motorsports Park. This year’s Primary tire is the same construction as the 2021 Primary tire, paired with the newly designed compound that provides improved durability for more consistency lap to lap. The Alternate tire is the same construction as the 2021 Alternate tire with a new Alternate compound to mirror the changes in the design of the 2022 Primary tire compound.
