NASCAR Next Gen test at Charlotte: Here’s the drivers

Today, we’re set to see the largest test session for the NASCAR Next Gen car via Charlotte Motor Speedway; Here’s the drivers involved…

For 2022, the game will be shifted on it’s head. A new car is set to debut and change the entire sport.

The Next Gen car is a spec chassis. Every car in the field is the same, regardless of manufacture. The bodies are carbon and designed for more banging with less risk of a cut tire. Aerodynamics are designed to give air to a trailing car, reducing dirty air and making it easier to race.

Of course, everyone’s favorite is the number placement. The numbers on the doors have been moved forward, giving more room for sponsor logos.

The shiny new machines will debut at Daytona next year. However, we haven’t seen many on track at the same time. Thus far, the biggest test was at Daytona which featured with 8 cars.

That is set to change today. Charlotte Motor Speedway is hosting a NASCAR Next Gen test on Monday and Tuesday. Some teams will be bringing multiple drivers to run a single car.

21 cars will be involved in the test…
