Martinsville Next Gen Test Featuring Manufacturer-Built Cars

The new NASCAR Next Gen returns to the track on March 30-31 at Martinsville Speedway for its next test session.

However, this session will be different from others.

Three cars will appear at the test session, the most NASCAR has held for its evaluation of the new car. Each car will be manufacturer-specific, according to Bob Pockrass at Fox Sports.

Both Toyota and Ford will have test drivers to pilot their cars, with Drew Herring behind the wheel of the Toyota and David Ragan piloting the Ford. Alex Bowman is slated to drive the Chevrolet for the test session.

Each manufacturer has had it design approved by NASCAR. A wheel-force transducer will be featured on the car to collect data while cars are on track.

According to a NASCAR official, each manufacturers’ designs should be revealed in late spring.

The new car is scheduled to debut in 2022 at the season-opening Daytona 500.
