GOODYEAR TIRE NOTES

    NASCAR Camping World Truck Series - Race No. 16 - American Ethanol E15 225 Chicagoland Speedway (1.5-mile oval) - Joliet, Ill. Fast Facts for September 15-18, 2016

    Tire: Goodyear Eagle Speedway Radials

    Set limits: Camping World Truck: 5 sets for the event

    Tire Codes: Left-side -- D-4684; Right-side -- D-4686

    Tire Circumference: Left-side -- 87.24 in. (2,216 mm); Right-side -- 88.35 in. (2,244 mm)

    Minimum Recommended Inflation: Left Front -- 19 psi; Left Rear -- 19 psi; Right Front -- 48 psi; Right Rear -- 44 psi

    Notes: Teams in all three NASCAR series in action at Chicagoland this week will run the same Goodyear tire set-up . . . these are two different tire codes than these teams ran at Chicagoland last year, though they have run them at other tracks this year . . . in Sprint Cup and Camping World Truck, this is the same combination of left- and right-side tires teams ran at Texas in April and June, respectively . . . Cup teams also ran this left-side tire at Dover in May . . . in Xfinity, teams ran this left-side tire earlier this season at Texas, though this is the first time they have run this right-side tire . . . like last year at Chicagoland, this right-side tire code (D-4686) employs Goodyear's multi-zone tread technology, which combines two distinct tread compounds on the same tire -- the outboard 10 inches of the tread (Traction Zone) features a compound that is designed for grip, while the inboard two inches of the tread (Endurance Zone) is toughened to enhance durability on the part of the tire sees the most heat and takes the most abuse . . . compared to what was run at Chicagoland last season, this right-side tire features a construction change, and a compound change on the outboard 10 inches to give the cars more grip . . . this left-side tire code (D-4684) features an updated construction and mold shape change, as well as a compound change for more grip . . . as on all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are required to run inner liners in all four tire positions at Chicagoland . . . air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than that of the outer tire.

NASCAR NEWS & NOTES

    One More Shot To Earn Berth In NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase

    NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers have one more opportunity to seize a spot in the inaugural Chase - Friday’s American Ethanol E15 225 at Chicagoland Speedway (8:30 p.m. ET on FS1).

    Right now, six drivers are locked in because they’ve won a race: William Byron (five victories), Matt Crafton (two), John Hunter Nemechek (2), Johnny Sauter, Ben Kennedy and Christopher Bell.

    Daniel Hemric (56 points ahead of Cole Custer on the cutoff line) and Timothy Peters (+32) hold the final two spots on the eight-driver grid due to points.

    Since Hemric and Peters have such large points leads, any driver outside the current top eight essentially needs to win in order to make the Chase.

    TMNT-Sponsored Nemechek Goes For Second Straight Chicagoland Victory

    Coming off the third win of his career earlier this month at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, John Hunter Nemechek will attempt to triumph for the second straight season at the site of his first victory - Chicagoland Speedway.

    Nemechek used fuel strategy to win last season’s race at Chicagoland Speedway by 12.014 seconds - the greatest margin of victory at the track in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series history.

    The 19-year-old will pilot the No. 8 #TeamTurtle/#TeamFoot Chevrolet this weekend as part of Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sponsorship activation.

    Hemric Hauls To Third Straight Third-Place Finish

    Daniel Hemric is quietly having one of the best seasons in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He ranks second in points (28 behind William Byron) and leads the series with 12 top-10 finishes. Last race, he logged his third consecutive third-place finish in the Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

    His seven top-five showings are tied with Johnny Sauter for second in the series (Byron ranks first with eight). Currently seventh on the Chase Grid, a hefty 56 points ahead of second-place Cole Custer, Hemric will attempt to cement his spot in the playoffs at Chicagoland Speedway where he finished 25th last season.

    He would guarantee himself a spot in the Chase with a finish of 23rd or better.

    Tifft Returns To Camping World Truck Series Following Brain Surgery

    Matt Tifft returns to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on Friday in the No. 32 Red Horse Racing Toyota after a 10-week hiatus while recovering from brain surgery.

    The NASCAR Next member tested at Hickory Motor Speedway on Monday and has been sharpening his skills with a race simulator.

    Tifft has made the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts this season with a high finish of fifth at Charlotte.
