Notes – Cup teams on known tire set-up for All-Star race at Texas: Having moved to an 18-inch bead diameter tire for 2022, NASCAR Cup teams will run a different tire set-up than those in the Xfinity and Camping World Truck Series at Texas this weekend . . . Cup teams ran this same combination of left- and right-side tires at Kansas last week and will run it again at Nashville later this season . . . this left-side tire code was also run at Dover three weeks ago, while this right-side code was run at Darlington two weeks ago, as well as Fontana and Las Vegas earlier in the season . . . in addition to the obvious construction changes in moving to an 18-inch tire, this set-up features compound changes to both sides of the car (more grip) compared to what Cup teams ran at Texas in 2021 . . . with this 18-inch tire, and its lower profile sidewall, NASCAR Cup cars will not run inner liners in any of their tires in 2022.
