Goodyear Could Conduct Tire Test Before Returning to Martinsville This Fall

Pending conversations with NASCAR, Goodyear is looking to add a tire test at Martinsville Speedway before the track’s fall race weekend.

Greg Stucker, Goodyear’s director of race tire sales, discussed Monday on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio’s “Late Shift” the conditions for the tires at Martinsville and what could be next.

“It’s tough,” he said. “Obviously we worked on the formulation on that tread compound. … We thought we hit on a pretty good combination. We’ve already talked about perhaps going back a little bit later in the year and try to work on a little bit more. The difficult thing is how do you replicate those conditions? You’ve got to go back and run the evening, and we have to do it fairly quick in order to test in those same kind of conditions.
