Firestone Racing are bringing more than 1500 race tires to Iowa Speedway for this weekend’s double-header Hy-Veedeals.com 250 presented by DoorDash and the Hy-VeeSaluteToFarmers300 presented by Google.
Each entrant will receive 14 sets with the exception of the rookies.
Speaking ahead of the races this weekend, Lead Program Engineer Bridgestone Americas Motorsports, Dan Bishop commented saying:
We look forward to returning to Iowa Speedway for an action-packed double-header weekend. Iowa’s 7/8 mile oval track is short in distance with a bumpy surface that demands a lot of the tires. We designed our Firestone Firehawk oval tires to account for this by having a left-hand construction similar to an Indianapolis 500 tire and on the right hand side a super speedway construction. This design allows to handle a lot of turning necessary on a short oval while tracking the rough surface of the track. The construction and compound are the same as the 2020 Iowa race tires.
