Next Gen Testing Wednesday and Thursday at Charlotte Motor Speedway

As NASCAR inches closer to the 2022 Busch Light Clash in February at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Next Gen testing will continue on Wednesday and Thursday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Live look-ins will be available on NASCAR’s YouTube and Facebook channels.

This week’s session will feature a bigger roster of drivers and teams, as organizations are beginning to prepare for the 2022 season. The two-day organizational test allows teams to field their own cars, limiting entrants to one car for one- or two-car teams and two cars for three- or four-car teams. Recent changes to the Next Gen car’s structure include a position change for the exhaust and new slots on the rear windshield to reduce the temperature in the cockpit.

On-track activity is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Thursday.
