Inside the SCCA Podcast: Tire Management with Goodyear Engineer Nicole Stout

(Looking for an inside line on the Club? “Inside the SCCA” is a podcast that features interviews with the Club’s leading personalities, but it’s not owned by SCCA®. Instead, it’s an independent media outlet managed by Rule 15 Productions and hosted by longtime SCCA member and journalist Brian Bielanski. He uses the Club’s name with permission.)

Nicole Stout is a Goodyear Racing Tires engineer who can be found at many SCCA Super Tour weekends working in the Goodyear tire trailer. As the guest on this week’s Inside the SCCA podcast with Brian Bielanski, Nicole runs through her journey from handing her papa spark plugs, to soapbox derby racing, to engineering school at Purdue. Then, of course, there’s her career at Goodyear Racing Tires. This episode concentrates on tire management for those new to racing, although there’s gold in this episode that will benefit even the most experienced SCCA road racers.
