Goodyear tire testing press conference to be streamed live over the web
Fans will be able to watch as four drivers – 2010 Daytona 500 champion Jamie McMurray, Jeff Burton, Kurt Busch and Bobby Labonte – as well as NASCAR Vice President of Competition Robin Pemberton, Goodyear Director of Racing Greg Stucker and DIS President Joie Chitwood III provide attending media an update on the two-day test.
At least 18 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers will participate in the two-day Goodyear tire test on the new racing surface in advance of the 53rd running of the Daytona 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday, Feb. 20. The test will be the first time race cars will turn laps on the new asphalt of Daytona International Speedway, which was repaved for only the second time in its history.
The Goodyear tire test will be open to the public with free access to the Oldfield Grandstands through the lobby of the Daytona International Speedway ticket office.
The timing of the press conference may be adjusted to accommodate on-track delays.
