Live From Daytona: NASCAR Preseason Testing Underway

Didn't last season just end?

NASCAR's brief offseason has concluded and the start of the new year has arrived with preseason testing at Daytona International Speedway, which kicks off today in Florida.

Almost every Sprint Cup team is taking advantage of the opportunity to test for three days, and a handful of drivers are expected to speak with the media during the one-hour lunch break today and Friday.

Among those scheduled to speak are Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin.

On Friday, NASCAR officials will give a "competition update" – expected to focus on the decision to only allow drivers to collect points in one series.

NASCAR is offering streaming coverage of the test on Speed.com, and the press conferences will also be available online.

Stay tuned for multiple updates throughout today and Friday as drivers share their thoughts on the upcoming season.
