NASCAR bans all testing until further notice

Tuesday morning NASCAR announced a ban on all testing for all national series.

Vehicle Testing Policy – 5.1 Private Vehicle Testing: “Due to unprecedented events, all testing (not directly related to the Next Gen car) is banned until further notice. This includes but is not limited to: wind tunnels (full and scale models), climatic tunnels, 7/8 posters, K&C rigs (static and dynamic), driver simulators, etc.”

NASCAR says the move gives the industry a chance to be socially conscious and not feel like they’re putting themselves at a competitive disadvantage.
