DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Preparations for the rollout of the new NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race car continue with a great deal of excitement and NASCAR has secured two additional dates at Charlotte Motor Speedway – Dec. 11-12 and Jan. 17-18 – as an option for those teams that want to supplement their new car testing schedule.

These tests do not count against a team’s 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series testing allotment. NASCAR announced last month that beginning in 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams will be permitted to conduct up to four tests per organization at tracks that host series events.

“We’ve put together an aggressive and extensive testing schedule for the new car and we are pleased with how things are progressing,” said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR Vice President of Competition. “We have the opportunity to provide teams with a couple more optional test dates at a mile and half race track as we look to provide the most exciting and competitive racing that we possibly can. The Daytona Preseason Thunder testing will give teams the chance to prepare their cars for Speedweeks and the running of the Daytona 500. The new car has generated a lot of excitement and anticipation and we’re looking forward to seeing it in competition next year.”

Daytona Preseason Thunder, the annual three-day NASCAR Sprint Cup test session at Daytona Int’l Speedway, will be held Jan. 10-12.
