NASCAR Next Gen testing gets underway at Phoenix, Busch spins

Following a successful test at Daytona International Speedway, NASCAR heads west to Phoenix Raceway for further Next Gen testing.

Phoenix is a critical track on the NASCAR calendar, playing host to the season finale where the final four drivers in the playoffs battle it out for the championship.

NASCAR will utilize a 670-horsepower package at all tracks with the exception of superspeedways and the newly reconfigured Atlanta Motor Speedway. 

The 550hp aero package was scrapped after testing at Charlotte Motor Speedway in December.
