INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Goodyear appears to have resolved some of the problems that plagued last year’s Allstate 400 in Indianapolis.

Nine cars made it onto the track for testing Monday. Kyle Busch’s No. 18 car did the most consecutive laps with 17 early in the afternoon.

During last year’s Allstate 400, tire problems forced race officials to call competition cautions every 10 to 12 laps.

It’s the fourth time Goodyear has returned to Indy for testing this year _ and the sixth since last year’s race. Two cars reportedly ran 30 consecutive laps before running out of fuel at a previous session.

Goodyear has one more test session Tuesday.

Drivers were not available for interviews Monday.
