The IndyCar Series and Daytona International Speedway are in discussions regarding a compatibility test at Daytona International Speedway in September. The potential visit would allow IndyCar Series officials to determine the possibility of Daytona International Speedway to serve as a preseason testing venue. "We have talked to International Speedway Corp. about alternative warm weather venues for our pre-season testing and that led to discussions regarding a compatibility test at Daytona," said John Lewis, the Indy Racing league's vice president of league development. The potential compatibility test could allow series officials to see transitions onto the banking, tire wear/side loads and braking zones while looking for any challenging surface areas on the track.
"We're happy to hold discussions with the Indy Racing League on the possibility of using Daytona as a testing venue in the future," said DIS President Robin Braig.
