Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Drivers Test New Technology at Phoenix Raceway

Avondale, ARIZ. (January 31, 2017) – Coming off its announcement of 178 million in improvements yesterday, Phoenix Raceway is alive as many of the stars of NASCAR are running on the one mile oval this week.

With an all new title sponsor, NASCAR’s Monster Energy Cup Series teams are at Phoenix Raceway this week testing out new rule changes for their 2017 rides.  Some of the changes are aero while others deal with the technology that keeps these cars on the track.  Each team was allowed one their cars to test on Tuesday and Wednesday at Phoenix Raceway.

It was no surprise to see Stewart-Haas racing’s Kevin Harvick testing for the Stuart-Haas team as he has dominated at Phoenix Raceway in the recent past.  Dale Earnhardt Jr., recently returning to the NASCAR Cup Series after being cleared from a concussion he suffered at Michigan International Speedway in June was out testing as well.  Last years winner of the of November’s Monster Energy Cup Series Race Joey Logano and many others were also at PIR making laps around the track today.

During a Saturday afternoon press conference, both Harvick and Earnhardt Jr. welcomed the rule changes.  By noon on Tuesday, both were already getting used to their new rides.  The consistent issue seemed to be the balance of the new cars.  Harvick noted that the engines sounded different, but was confident that he and his team would overcome any challenges with the new cars.

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series test session is open to the public for free.  Head on out to Phoenix Raceway for Wednesday’s session.  Parking is free and entry is just a $5.00 donation to Phoenix Raceway Charities.  It’s a great chance to get your NASCAR fix before the Camping World 500 on March 19th.
