Buescher Tests Next Gen Car On Daytona Oval

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR completed a two-day test of its Next Gen prototype on Wednesday at Daytona Int’l Speedway, marking the new NASCAR Cup Series model’s first on-track appearance at the 2.5-mile superspeedway. “Daytona was an important test for us because when we come back here in 2022, we have to make sure we hit the speed targets that we’re looking for. Obviously, Daytona single-car is not the most fun kind of testing, but a lot was learned. Probst is hopeful that some of the things learned from this week’s test at Daytona will translate to other types of race tracks as NASCAR moves closer to the Next Gen car’s competitive debut. We will be working with Goodyear to do a couple more tests with the car, but it will be coming out of the development phase and we’ll be focusing primarily on the tires.
