40 days and counting….

Last week was the Preseason Thunder Testing at Daytona. Preseason Thunder gives the Teams a chance to test out the new rules package for 2014. Unfortunately… the rains moved in and the teams had only 1 day of testing.

Sunoco Rookie of the year contender Austin Dillon, making his debut in the No. 3 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing, set the pace in the single-car runs with a top lap speed of 195.109 mph.
Forty drivers turned laps in Gen-6 Chevrolets, Fords and Toyotas, which are entering their second year of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competition. Those cars featured a new 4.5-inch spoiler, designed to add more rear downforce for stability. Thirty-three cars topped 190 mph and the new aero package performed well in traffic, which was tested in the draft during the final hour of testing.

The top 5 speeds:
#3-Austin Dillon 195.109
#33-Brian Scott 194.582
#27-Matt Crafton 194.342
#43-Aric Almirola 193.828
#42-Kyle Larson 193.411

Cedar Rapids native Landon Cassill is behind the wheel of the #40 car and was 37th fastest out of 40 cars.
