Firestone have confirmed to Paddock Eye that they have brought the same tires to the Texas Motor Speedway for the Firestone 600 this weekend that were used at the original race in June.

Speaking during an interview with Paddock Eye on Friday, Cara Adam, chief engineer and manager of race tire development when asked if teams would use the same tire compounds on Saturday she said:

Absolutely. We are trying to use the exact same tyres that we had so for the teams that already had tyres leased out to them, we kept these tyres separate because they already have their own markings and a lot of the teams get the tyres and they do really detailed wear measurements so we want to try and make it easy on the teams and give them back the exact tyres they had last time wherever possible.
