It took a day of waiting thanks to the weather, but Friday more than 30 NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers were finally able to test NASCAR’s new Gen 6 car at the 1.5 mile Charlotte Motor Speedway.

At the end of the day Richard Petty Motorsports driver Aric Almirola turned the fastest lap of 27.832 seconds at 194.021 mph.  Carl Edwards at 193.673 mph and Casey Mears  at 193.382 mph were second and third with Marcos Ambrose 193.285 mph and Jimmie Johnson 192.795 mph rounded out the top five.
