Testing


Test sessions are vital to a team's success. NASCAR has banned testing at all of its sanctioned tracks. However, the teams can test at unsanctioned tracks such as Virginia International, Greenville-Pickens Speedway, and Rockingham Speedway. Unlike race weekends, on board computer systems are allowed during test sessions. In addition, several of the top teams are asked by Goodyear to participate in tire tests at various tracks.
