Goodyear – 60 Years As
The Official Tire Of #NASCAR

This year, Goodyear celebrates its 60th anniversary as a key supplier to America's most popular motorsport – NASCAR, making it not only one of the longest-running supplier relationships in racing, but in all of sports history.

"All of us at Goodyear are extremely proud to celebrate 60 consecutive years of supplying race tires to NASCAR and its drivers," said Stu Grant, general manager of global race tires. "Since 1954 our involvement in NASCAR has been a proving ground for tire development, helping Goodyear provide superior performance and innovation both on and off the track."

As part of the 60th Anniversary celebration, Goodyear has teamed up with Stewart-Haas Racing Driver Kevin Harvick to create a new “Tire Talk” video series. These videos showcasing the grueling conditions NASCAR tires face in a fun and entertaining manner!

You will love the creative comicality in the three Goodyear videos posted below. NASCAR Race Mom watched them numerous time – funny yet NASCAR educational.  They really help to demonstrate the incredibly challenging demands that are placed on Goodyear’s Eagle NASCAR tires each weekend.

Much like the cars of NASCAR have evolved over the decades, today's Goodyear Eagle race tires bear little resemblance to the standard auto and police tires used in the early 1950s. Goodyear's dedication to tire performance led to purpose-built treaded bias race tires in 1957, to slick bias race tires in 1974, to the first radial racing tires in 1988, and just last year to the introduction of race tires using Goodyear's exclusive Multi-Zone Tread Technology.

"The evolution of our NASCAR racing tires has been a very exciting and rewarding project," said Grant. "We are looking forward to the next 60 years."

Goodyear is one of the world's largest tire companies. It employs approximately 69,000 people and manufactures its products in 52 facilities in 22 countries around the world. Its two Innovation Centers in Akron, Ohio and Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg strive to develop state-of-the-art products and services that set the technology and performance standard for the industry.
