(above & below) As the tire pressure is reduced from optimum, the pressure on the middleportion of the tire is reduced, resulting in less traction. The sameoccurs as we overinflate the tire. The outer edges of the tire losepressure to the racing surface which results in less traction. Atoptimum pressure, the entire width of the tire contact patch will exertequal pressure on the racing surface.
