IndyCar makes tire allotment tweaks

Teams with drivers outside the top 10 in points will no longer be allowed to purchase an extra set of Firestone tires to use in opening practice on road and street courses. Rookies are exempt from the policy change, and will continue having access to one additional set, according to IndyCar competition president Jay Frye. "The rookies will get an extra set of tires next season, but those outside the top 10 will not," Frye told RACER. "We got to a situation where, with 22 or 24 cars coming to most events, more than half the field would be getting an extra set of tires, and that seemed like it was a bit much."
