With a new Sprint Cup car coming in 2013 and an effort afoot to improve the product on the track, NASCAR is looking to add additional tests to next year’s schedule.

The current testing ban was announced at Homestead-Miami Speedway in November 2008 for the following season as part of the sanctioning body’s effort at cost containment. Since then, testing has picked up as Goodyear rolls out new tire combinations for existing tracks or after tracks were repaved.
