On Thursday’s edition of NASCAR America, Marty Snider, Wally Dallenbach and Kyle Petty discussed the perspective a parent must have in order to let their child get behind the wheel of a race car. Petty, who lost son Adam in a 2000 crash at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, says after a tragic incident, there are steps that have to be taken in order to get back to a place where you feel comfortable.
The focus this week is on the United States Grand Prix from Circuit of The Americas in Austin, but because it’s Tuesday, the Pirelli tire selections for next week’s Mexican Grand Prix are also out.
And for once, there’s a wide variance in selections.

Meanwhile all other teams have gone between eight to 10 sets of ultrasoft tires.
The full breakdown is below.
