A Goodyear Tire test at Homestead-Miami Speedway, set for Aug. 26, has been rescheduled to Sept. 9, three days after the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup field will be set at Richmond International Raceway.
Goodyear Eagle Racing Radials for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship race, the Ford EcoBoost 400 (Sunday, Nov. 16, 3 p.m. ET, ESPN) will come from the company's Group 2 venue grouping. Other tracks in that grouping include fellow Chase tracks, including the first race in the Chase, Chicagoland Speedway (Sept. 14, 2 p.m. ET, ESPN); Kansas Speedway (Oct. 5, 2 p.m. ET, ESPN); Charlotte Motor Speedway (Oct. 11, 7:30 p.m. ET, ABC) and Texas Motor Speedway (Nov. 2, 3 p.m. ET, ESPN).
The Chicagoland test, scheduled for June 10-11, battled rain. It was attended by Jimmie Johnson in the No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet and Joey Logano in the No. 22 Team Penske Ford, both of whom have clinched Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup spots. Denny Hamlin in the No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, a provisional Chase Grid driver, took part, too, as well as Paul Menard in the No. 27 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet.
