CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- NASCAR is apologizing for the tire fiasco
that ruined Sunday's race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and has
already started working to avoid a repeat.
Robin Pemberton, NASCAR's vice president of competition, says
the organization is "sorry" for tire troubles during the
Brickyard 400 and it is NASCAR's responsibility to make sure a
similar situation doesn't happen again.
A durability issue with the tires Goodyear brought to Indy
forced NASCAR to call cautions every 10 to 12 laps Sunday. The
longest run under a green flag was 13 laps and Jimmie Johnson
claimed the victory at the end of a seven-lap sprint to the finish.
