"The Firestone Race Tire Engineering team is ready to return to World Wide Technology Raceway for the last oval race of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES season. Recently repaved, this track brings a consistent surface with two different turns of varying degrees of banking, challenging drivers as they race around the 1.25-mile oval. We are bringing the same compound and construction as last year’s Firestone Firehawk race tires, which provides drivers the right amount of grip, degradation and durability for teams to strategize single tire use."

FIRESTONE FAST FACT
World Wide Technology Raceway has a unique egg-shaped layout with varying degrees of banking in each corner, challenging drivers and our Firestone Firehawk race tires as they make their way around the 1.25-mile oval. This layout has drivers going straight for 44% of their lap time, compared to other ovals on the schedule, where lap time spent in the straights can be as little as 7%.
