Firestone Racing will supply more than 5,000 sets of tires for Sunday’s 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge which is expected to have cooler than normal temperatures during the event. Each driver received 35 sets of tires throughout practice, qualifying, and the race.

Speaking ahead of the race this weekend, Director of Race Tire Engineering and Production with Bridgestone Americas Motorsports Cara Adams said:

For this year’s 105th Running of the Indianapolis 500 we’re bringing back the same tire compound and construction used in 2020. During the off-season we did testing and from that, determined that this tire continued to provide the best performance. The tire provided excellent grip and wear characteristics, proving that it provides optimum durability and consistency over the stints. We are looking forward to the race this weekend and are thrilled to have fans back in the stands to celebrate the ‘Greatest Spectacle In Racing’.
