Greg Stucker, Goodyear‘s director of racing, said Sunday the tire supplier plans to debut a new softer tire compound in the Cup Series for the July 16 race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Right now, the new tire compound is only scheduled to run at New Hampshire.
“The jury is still out,” Stucker said. “We just feel like Loudon can require something softer. We wanted to go with the new short track package and test there. It may only be a Loudon tire. It doesn‘t necessarily mean we‘ll use it later in the year.”
