YOKOHAMA TIRES
•Don't forget to check in at tech if you are running Yokohama tires on your race car. Once you check in, you'll be entered in the Road Mangler LM cup, which gives you a chance to win a free set of Yokos. 
•If you want to run Yokohamas but don't know what'll work for Lemons, they've set up a handy page with a couple of the most popular choices.
