NASCAR lays out Next Gen test schedule

By

NASCAR expects to run six more tests early this year with its Next Gen prototype before increasing its testing schedule through the remainder of the season.

The test program includes an projected second car on track in March or April, and NASCAR officials said last week that more comprehensive multi-car testing isn’t expected before the second half of the year.

Deeper into the season, testing will ramp up with Goodyear tire tests as well as organizational and open tests. One car per organization will be permitted to participate in an organizational test while open tests will be for all Cup Series teams.

The testing schedule is subject to change.
