NASCAR amends Next Gen testing schedule

NASCAR announced a reshuffling of the offseason Next Gen testing schedule Wednesday.

A session at Phoenix Raceway, site of the 2022 Championship Weekend, will be moved to Jan. 25-26, replacing the Las Vegas Motor Speedway test scheduled for the same dates. This test was initially set for Dec. 14-15. The remainder of the proposed 2022 organizational test schedule remains unchanged.

An additional oval test at Charlotte Motor Speedway is now tentatively scheduled for Dec. 15 and 17. There will be a “cold” day between the two testing days to allow for better data analysis and planning. 

A previously scheduled Next Gen test at Daytona from Jan. 11-12 remains unchanged.
