NASCAR’s new Sprint Cup cars for 2013 turned their first laps in public view Tuesday. A Ford Fusion, Chevy SS and Toyota Camry took to Martinsville Speedway as teams began to gather data for the cars which will debut next season. Noticeably absent was Dodge who announced Tuesday that they will leave NASCAR at the end of this season.
Roush-Fenway Racing driver Carl Edwards was happy not only to test the new Fusion, but to get some track time as well.
“It’s a track that’s been really, really difficult for me personally and our Roush Fenway team for a couple of years now,” Edwards said. “So it’s really good for me. It’s nice to get a little extra time to work with Chad and Donnie Wingo and go through some things we’ve always wanted to try here. I guess Goodyear is gonna work with us a little bit more this afternoon and tomorrow. I still haven’t eaten one of those hot dogs yet. I know you’re trying to get me to do that, but I’m trying to get fast without doing that. I like this place. It’s fun to drive. I just want to get faster.” MORE>>>
