FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - NASCAR will not regulate tire pressures at Texas Motor Speedway, and if drivers have tire failures during Sunday's race, officials believe they won't be able to blame Goodyear.
There were multiple tire issues at California two weeks ago, and many drivers tried to blame the product Goodyear brought to the track.
NASCAR insisted the issues were self-inflicted and a product of teams going far beyond the air pressure limits recommended by the manufacturer.
Now, as a handful of drivers have predicted similar problems this weekend at Texas, NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton says each team controls its own fate.
