Tire Info

Goodyear Eagle Dirt Bias Ply tires are on hand at Eldora Speedway. Bias ply tires are a unique scenario for the series as they typically used radial tires on all three of the top divisions in the NASCAR ladder.

The block style tread is unique to the dirt surface, similar to years prior. Additionally, tire stagger is built in with the left side tire being smaller than the rights.

However, the compound is different from the 2018 race. New for 2019, both the left and right side tires will see a new tread that is designed to introduce more wear.
