NEW DIRECTION? Goodyear VP/PR & Communications for North American Tire Ed Markey said that company officials are "having 'internal discussions' regarding supplying tires for IndyCar but no decisions have been made." Markey said the company's "focus is on NASCAR" and other motorsports with which Goodyear already has a relationship. He added that Goodyear "does not want to take on new business that would jeopardize its relationships with current customers" (AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 3/8).
