NASCAR Next Gen drivers will compete on newly designed Goodyear Eagle tires for the first time at the Daytona 500 on Feb. 20.

"An engineering undertaking two years in the making, Goodyear’s NASCAR Next Gen tire closely mirrors its high-performance tire for passenger cars and features an 18-inch wheel diameter, shorter sidewall and wider contact patch," say Goodyear officials.

“Incorporating an 18-inch bead diameter tire was an important factor of the NASCAR Next Gen design, performance capabilities and aesthetics,” says Greg Stucker, director, race tire sales and marketing, Goodyear.

“Creating a low-profile, street-inspired tire for Cup Series racing was a significant accomplishment that required coordination throughout the entire NASCAR racing community.”
