Cara Krstolic, Executive Director of Race Tire Engineering and Production Chief Engineer Motorsports with Firestone Racing, has confirmed to Paddock Eye that, due to the lack of running during the April test here at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, each of the 34 entries entered for the 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge has 37 sets of the Firestone Firehawk tire.

Cara also told us that Firestone is excited about the introduction of the new era of hybrid technology. They have done a lot of work since October 2022 and are excited about it. They have also done a lot of testing and development for the new era, which will be introduced at the Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course later this season.
