Firestone Racing has developed new dry-condition tire specifications for Barber Motorsports Park for 2013. The primary (black-sidewall) spec includes a slight body construction change from last year’s tire and a higher-grip (“softer”) tread compound. It’s the same spec used at last month’s open test when many drivers eclipsed the official track record. The alternate (red-sidewall) tires possess an even softer tread compound than in 2012 to maintain or increase the performance difference between the two specs from a year ago.
