At Darlington Raceway
Tuesday the track came alive as drivers participated in another Goodyear Tire
Test. Darlington, also known as The
Track too Tough to Tame, is the site of the Bojangles Southern 500.
The spectators on hand
were very interested by the new Gen-6 car, NASCAR's next generation Sprint Cup
car that will be on the track in the 2013 season.
Racing's Martin Truex, Jr. thinks the new car allows a driver to be more aggressive
on the track. Roush Fenway's Carl
Edwards feels Darlington is a learning experience.
After 18 months of
on-track testing, with more than 30 drivers, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Gen 6 racer
is hitting the road on a multi-city blitz introducing the Chevrolet SS, the
Ford Fusion and the Toyota Camry to the racing public.
The first stop is Detroit, followed by New York City before heading to Daytona Beach for Daytona
