Order Reprints

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series —Race No. 11 — SpongeBob SquarePants 400
NASCAR Camping World Truck Series — Race No. 4 — Toyota Tundra 250
Kansas Speedway (1.5-mile oval), Kansas City, Kan., May 8-10, 2015

The tires specified for this weekend are the Goodyear Eagle Speedway Radials.
Set limits for the Sprint Cup are five sets for practice/qualifying and 10 sets for
the race; Camping World Truckare allowed five sets for the event.

Teams in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Camping World Truck
Series will run the same combination of left- and right-side tires at
Kansas this weekend. While the teams ran this left-side tire
code (D-4604) at this track last season, this is the first time they
have run this right-side code (D-4630) at Kansas for the Sprint Cup
teams, compared to what they ran in at Kansas in 2014. This right-side
tire features a construction change that brings it into line with what
is run at other speedways.

For the Camping World Truck teams, who ran their own right-side at Kansas last May,
this tire features both a construction and slight compound change.

On all NASCAR ovals greater than one mile in length, teams are
required to run inner liners in all four tire positions.
For Kansas air pressure in those inner liners should be 12-25 psi greater than
that of the outer tire.
