Nascar drivers give scorching critisism about the Goodyear tires at Kobalt Tools 500

Tony Stewart "If they can't do better than that, pull out of the sport. I guarantee you that Hoosier or Firestone could do a better job than that."

"That's the worse tire I've been on in my life in any professional form of racing," ... "Look at when they exited Formula One and the IRL and CART and World of Outlaws, USAC, you name it, because they can't compete, they can't keep up, they don't have the technology and they don't have the people smart enough to build a tire. This was pathetic today."

“Goodyear can't build a tire that is worth a crap. If I were Goodyear, I would be really embarrassed about this weekend and what they brought here.”

Goodyear doesn't have any competition on the track, they have an exclusive rights contract with Nascar until 2011, .....each tire costs $389.00.
