We head to Darlington Raceway for the Goodyear 400. The race is at 3:00pm EST on FS1. This 400-mile race is not as daunting as the 500-mile race at the end of the summer, but it’s still one of the most challenging racetracks in the Series. With the high-tire wear and steep banks, anything can happen at Darlington. This is a different right-side tire than they ran at Darlington last season. They have used this tire at Kansas, and the higher speed intermediates this season. This is the same left-side tire as both races last season. I’ll be using recent Darlington data, Steep high tire wear track data, practice, 2024 speed, and a few other things when building lineups.
