After a two day delay thanks to rainy weather, sixteen NASCAR Sprint Cup teams and 30 drivers were able to take to the 1.5 mile Charlotte Motor Speedway Wednesday for the final NASCAR test of 2013.

The test was called by NASCAR in order to gather data to develop the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series intermediate-track package for 2014 for the Gen-6 racecars.

“We did an initial test here in October,” said Gene Stefanyshyn, NASCAR Vice President, Innovation and Racing Development. MORE>>>
