(PHOENIX, Ariz.) - Having set its sights on the new season, NASCAR has announced the 2008 testing schedules for its three national series - the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the NASCAR Nationwide Series, and the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series - and Phoenix International Raceway is on the short list of host tracks. PIR is one of six venues chosen by NASCAR officials, team officials, and crew chiefs for a Sprint Cup Series testing date, and will host testing Monday, March 3 and Tuesday, March 4. Times and public viewing information will be announced in the coming weeks. In all, the tests will provide each race team an opportunity to prepare for the various track layouts, surfaces and conditions that they will face over the course of the season. "NASCAR received input and recommendations from each of the crew chiefs that was valuable to our decision making process in determining the testing schedule for 2008," said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR vice president for competition. "The teams were interested in testing at some of the venues that the new car will be competing at for the first time. This lineup of tests will provide the teams the opportunity to prepare for a successful 2008 season."
A number of great tickets still remain for the April event weekend, which is highlighted by the Saturday, April 12 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™. Fans can purchase tickets online at www.racetickets.com and over the phone at 1-866-408-RACE (7223).
