Time to get testy

SPARTA, Ky.—Jimmie Johnson, comfortably atop the NASCAR Sprint Cup points standings, would like to see Hendrick Motorsports save its four allotted tests at Cup tracks for venues in the Chase — unless a test will help a teammate qualify for the playoff.

Johnson, however, realizes that other organizations won’t have that luxury, especially if they’re on the Chase bubble.

“The other teams in that bubble area — you’ll see a lot of tests and you’ll hear a lot about testing,” Johnson said Friday at Kentucky Speedway. “Teams have been very smart about preserving test sessions.

“And as we get closer to the Chase, I think you’ll see a lot of teams in that 8-to-14 or 8-to-12 range using those test sessions to make sure they have good finishes and collect a lot of points.”
