Rain Drowns Texas Test

Persistent rain has postponed this week’s scheduled NASCAR Sprint Cup Series test session at Texas Motor Speedway. Chase contenders Hendrick Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing, Roush Fenway Racing and Michael Waltrip Racing left the track after Tuesday’s rainout and will return for the rescheduled test next week.

 The four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series organizations had planned for an extensive three-day test session beginning Monday, but steady rain prevented them from participating in any on-track activity. A 100 percent chance of thunderstorms Tuesday and intermittent rain throughout in the morning prompted them to pack their bags and head for home.
Following Sunday's race at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, all four organizations will return to Texas Motor Speedway for a rescheduled three-day test session, beginning Monday from 3-10 p.m. CT. The teams will also run Tuesday from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. (with a two-hour break from 4-6 p.m.) and Wednesday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Richard Childress Racing will join the test on Tuesday and Wednesday.
