NASCAR Sprint Cup and Xfinity teams will have a new tire combination this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Sprint Cup teams ran the new right-side tire at Talladega Superspeedway in October. Goodyear states that the new right-side tire features a compound change for better wear.

The left-side tire features a construction and compound change compared to what ran last year at Las Vegas. Goodyear states the compound change is intended to enhance grip.

Sprint Cup teams will have five sets of Goodyear tires for practice and qualifying and nine sets for the race. Xfinity teams will have eight sets for the event.
