Firestone Racing has brought more than 1,500 race tires for this weekend’s Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg presented by RP Funding. The tire allotments are as follows.

  • Primary (black sidewall): 6 sets per entry
    Alternate (green sidewall): 4 sets per entry
    Rain (gray sidewall): 3 sets per entry

Speaking about the start of the new season, Cara Krstolic, Chief Engineer, on NTT INDYCAR SERIES tires:

“For this year edition of the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, you’ll see a similar gap in drop off to last year between the Firestone Firehawk primary tires and the alternate tire with guayule rubber in the sidewall. The construction is the same, but we made a slight change to the compound that will result in slightly more durability on the lighter Indy car. These tires had a successful test in the off-season at Sebring.”
