Tire issues leave Gibbs and Goodyear searching for answers

Gibbs and Goodyear

Except for race winner Carl Edwards, Joe Gibbs Racing’s Sprint Cup drivers faced a rash of tire issues in Sunday’s race at Bristol which perplexed the teams and Goodyear.

Edwards’s race went without incident in regards to tires and he held off Dale Earnhardt Jr. to secure his first Sprint Cup Series win of the season.

But the day did not go nearly as well for his teammates Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin. All three experienced blown right-front tires in the race, and in the case of Busch and Kenseth, each had the issues occur twice.

Hamlin finished 20th, Kenseth 36th and Busch 38th.
