CONCORD, N.C. — Thirty NASCAR Sprint Cup Series cars took part in a test of their Gen-6 race cars Wednesday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

NASCAR ran five different mock races, as well as several tuning sessions with cars completing single-car runs. The test session was intended to finalize rules packages for the 2014 season.

“We did an initial test here in October,” said Gene Stefanyshyn, NASCAR Vice President, Innovation and Racing Development. “We got some information. We’ve been very fortunate that we’ve actually had a huge participation. We have 30 cars out there. We’re trying to exercise all this in a real-world environment.”

“It is different when you have 30 cars, or 25 cars, versus the six (from October),” said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR VP of Competition and Racing Development. “It was important that we come back with a field of cars like we did. It gave us a little bit of a different view of some of the answers and has put us in some different directions that we will continue to work on.”
