6 NASCAR Drivers, including Kyle Larson and Ryan Blaney, Gear Up for Phoenix Short Track Testing

Kyle Larson, along with Ryan Blaney and four other drivers, will participate in the short track test in Phoenix on December 5-6. The test will feature two teams from each of the three manufacturers in the Cup Series competing at the 1-mile oval. Toyota and Ford are expected to test new bodies of the 2024 models in the upcoming test, and thicker tread tires will also be used. There are also reports of new developments aimed at improving the short track and the road course package for the upcoming season. NASCAR is focused on enhancing the racing on short tracks and is open to any ideas for improvement.

Three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Tony Stewart, during a conversation with Chase Briscoe, expressed his admiration for Kyle Larson’s achievement in winning the three feature events on the same night. Larson’s accomplishment as one of only two drivers to achieve this feat still stings Stewart, especially after his own cherished moments in motorsports. These developments in the world of NASCAR will certainly be exciting for fans and drivers alike.
