NASCAR: Drivers blame Kansas track surface for issues

NASCAR and Goodyear officials will meet Tuesday to discuss, among other things, tire selection for this past weekend's Hollywood Casino 400.

The meeting wasn't scheduled in light of driver comments following the season's 30th Sprint Cup Series race.

"We meet with Goodyear every Tuesday," Sprint Cup Series director John Darby said following Sunday's race at Kansas Speedway.

"We'll download everything — Goodyear's side of it as well as what team information we can give everyone. … We'll kind of get a better feel for it then."

Goodyear officials provided teams with a new tire combination for the 1.5-mile track, utilizing the same multi-zone technology that produced tires used last month at Atlanta. The Kansas package consisted of a more tractive compound on the left side to provide more grip while the right was a combination of a harder inner shoulder with the same compound used at Kansas earlier this year on the outside.
