ENTRANT FACTS

Entry list: View PDF
Past entrant performance: N/A
Spotter guide: View PDF
Pit assignments: View PDF
Wing configuration: Modified superspeedway
Boost level: 130 kPa
Tires available per entry: From Firestone: The Pocono tire specification features the same left-side tire specification used at Indianapolis in May, combined with the same right-side tire spec run at Texas in June. This is a change in specification from what was run at the June 25 manufacturer/team test at Pocono. Following analysis of data from the testing, it was decided a more durable right-side tire specification is necessary for the race weekend.A total of 1,828 tires are available.
· Each entry receives three sets (12 total tires) for the July 4 open test.
· Each entry receives 13 sets (52 total tires) for the race weekend. Rookie drivers and those outside the top 10 in points receive an additional set for the first practice session only.
· Tire stagger: A single stagger of approximately 0.33 of an inch is available for all teams. Stagger is created by molding the right rear tire with a larger diameter than the left rear and helps race cars turn more naturally and smoothly on oval tracks.
