Firestone Racing brought more than 1700 race tires to this weekend’s Big Machine Music City Grand Prix on the streets of Nashville, the home city of their parent company, Bridgestone. Each driver will receive seven sets of the Primary tire, four sets of the Alternate tire and five sets of the Gray Rain tire.
Speaking ahead of the race, Cara Adams Director of Race Tire Engineering and Production with Bridgestone Americas Motorsports commented saying:
The inaugural Big Machine Music City Grand Prix is gearing up to be a great event, and we can’t wait to see the Indy Cars run on the streets of Nashville. When preparing for this new circuit, our Firestone Tire Engineers worked with the track designers to understand the layout and with the engine manufactures on simulations. We compared that data with our current street course compounds and constructions and determined that our 2021 St Petersburg street course tires were the best design for optimal performance.
