DOVER, Del. -- NASCAR will allow each Sprint Cup organization to test at four sanctioned tracks of their choosing in 2013. It will be the first time testing has been allowed at sanctioned tracks since the governing body banned them after the 2008 season in an effort to force teams to cut costs. The four tests will be in addition to a preseason test at Daytona International Speedway prior to the opener. It has not been decided how many cars each organization can take to each test.
