Firestone Racing’s Cara Adams says that the company has brought a more durable left side compound that is more durable in order to cope with the challenges of the track surface at Texas Motor Speedway.
Our Firestone Race Tire Engineering team is presented with unique challenges when preparing for oval tracks like Texas Motor Speedway. We must develop tires that can take the load applied to the right-side tires paired with the issue of staggering the circumference to assist with high speed corning. This year the engineering team is bringing a new left-side compound that is more durable than last year, with the same construction as the 2021 left-side tire. The right-side tire is the same compound and construction as the 2021 tire.
