Six NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams and 15 Sprint Cup drivers will test at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (Oct. 29-31).  Testing will run each day from 9:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m. EST.

The test sessions will be open to the public.  There is no charge for spectators and viewing areas include Speedway Club and seating areas above the infield garages. Grandstands will open at 9:00 a.m.

There will be media availability with drivers Tuesday (Oct. 29), likely in the early afternoon. A list of drivers expected to be available will be announced later.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers scheduled to test at Homestead-Miami Speedway include:

 Hendrick Motorsports: Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Kasey Kahne
 Wood Brothers Racing: Trevor Bayne
 Phil Parsons Racing: Michael McDowell
 Joe Gibbs Racing: Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth
 Michael Waltrip Racing: Clint Bowyer, Elliott Sadler and Martin Truex Jr.
 Earnhardt Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates: Jamie McMurray and Juan Pablo Montoya.

The list of scheduled participants includes the top three drivers in the Chase For The Sprint Cup – Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth (-4) and Kyle Busch (-26) – and six of the top 10 in points after 32 of 36 races.

Penske Racing, which fields teams in both the NASCAR Nationwide Series and the Sprint Cup Series, will also test on October 29-30. Nationwide Series championship contender Sam Hornish Jr. and Joey Logano will conduct testing in advance of the Nationwide Series Ford EcoBoost 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway (Nov. 16).

“We’re looking forward to hosting teams from all three NASCAR national touring series for this vital test session,” said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer. “It’ll be great to hear the distinctive roar of stock car engines, and it’ll provide a great preview of the racing we’ll see next month during Ford Championship Weekend.  We’re especially excited that the testing is open to the public, and we hope fans in South Florida take advantage of this unique opportunity.”

There will also be NASCAR Camping World Truck Series testing October 29-31, with Win-Tron Racing and driver Mason Mingus.

All testing dates and participants are tentative and subject to change.
