The Allstate 400

July 28, 2008


Jimmie Johnson won the race, but nobody cares about that. The tires were the story. I can understand one competition caution if practice is rained out and nobody is sure how cars handle under race setup, however competition cautions every 12 laps because the tires fall apart that will surely ruin a race and would never happen right? It did happen and it happened at quite possibly the most famous track in the world.

What I'm most amazed at were the announcers saying that this wasn't Goodyear's fault, Richard Childress saying this wasn't Goodyear's fault. Last time I checked Goodyear made the tires for Nascar, so was it Firestone's fault? I'm going on record and saying yes, it was Goodyear's fault. This is not the first time NASCAR has raced on a rough surface, Goodyear was prepared at those tracks. Goodyear has raced on Baja courses, dirt tracks, and road courses, so Goodyear means to tell us they did not have a tire for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway? Pretty much, but it wasn't their fault.

Good post, NASCAR really needs to do something about this. Either by forcing Goodyear to make better tires or by letting the teams choose what company they go with.
