ENTRANT FACTS

Entry list: View PDF
Spotter guide: View PDF
Pit assignments: View PDF
Wing configuration: Modified road/street (front brake duct backing plates added; two-thirds radiator inlet shutters optional; minimum rear flap angle of 37 degrees; no wicker)
Boost level: 140kPa
Tires available per entry: From Firestone: Each entry receives nine sets (36 total tires) for practice, the qualifying heats and the race. A total of 1,128 tires are available. This is a new Firehawk tire specification that pairs the right-side tire spec used two weeks ago at Texas with the left-side compounds used last month at Indianapolis, along with the larger tire stagger typically seen on short ovals.
*
Tire stagger: A single stagger of approximately 0.45 of an inch is available for all teams. Stagger, created by molding the right rear tire with a larger diameter than the left rear, helps race cars turn more naturally and smoothly on oval tracks.
