NASCAR: Checking in on today’s tire test at Las Vegas (PHOTOS)


Kurt Busch, A.J. Allmendinger, Matt Kenseth, and Brad Keselowski are currently taking part in a Goodyear tire test at Las Vegas Motor Speedway – the first test to be run under NASCAR’s new testing policies.

Private team testing has been banned for 2015, but in its place are series of NASCAR open team tests and Goodyear tire tests.

Today’s test on the 1.5-mile Vegas oval is the first of the 14 Goodyear sessions and the only one of those that won’t come directly before or after an open team session.

Las Vegas will host the third race of the 2015 Sprint Cup season on March 8. Here are social media shots from today’s session:

We’ll have more on the test later tonight here on MotorSportsTalk, so keep an eye out.
