NASCAR seemed to be pleased coming out of the three-day Preseason Thunder testing at Daytona International Speedway. For NASCAR it was the first time that the new Generation-6 cars were on the restrictor plate track.
“We think we’re in a good spot,” said NASCAR vice president Robin Pemberton. “The speeds are slightly higher with single cars and slightly down for the pack. We feel like we’re in a way better place than we were a year ago. We’re in the ballpark. We know the teams will go back and bring a little better this and a little better that. We feel comfortable with that. The speeds will fluctuate a lot. But we’re right in the ballpark. We don’t foresee any changes.”
