PIR testing of new track configuration

The Racing Roundup crew was invited to see the new track configuration as Tony Stewart, Kurt and Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards and Jimme Johnson took to the track. It is a much different look and feel to the track, with wider corners, a new grove down the back stretch and banking all around. Early testing showed going into turn two low, high down the back stretch and back low into turn three making a roller coaster effect. All the drivers were intrested (and hopeful they will have a chance in the second day of testing) in how it will play out in traffic.

Listen to the 08/29/11 show for more indepth analysis of the visit.
