NASCAR Suspends Testing For 2009

NASCAR announced that it will suspend testing in all of its series in 2009 in an effort to help teams save money.

As part of the new policy, teams will not be allowed to test at any track that holds a NASCAR sanctioned event in the three major series and two regional series.

Goodyear will still conduct its tire tests, and NASCAR will allow testing in extrem situations like the disasterous race and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. 

Reaction was mixed for the ban, some drivers praised it while others didn’t like the idea.

The move is could save teams as much as $1.5 million per car per year.
