NASCAR held Goodyear tire testing at Darlington on Feb.5, 2013.  Drivers said speeds were up at the race track with the new Gen 6 race car. The test included Carl Edwards, Juan Pablo Montoya, Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex Jr. and Paul Menard.

Edwards found the new car to be faster and racers should expect better handling and tighter racing when the circuit returns to NASCAR’s oldest super speedway for the Southern 500 on May 11.

Truex Jr. said he is confident a driver will shatter Darlington’s record qualifying speed of 181.254 mph set by Kasey Kahne at the 2011 race.
