One day removed from the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mich., NASCAR conducted a test at MIS on Monday as part of the process to determine the 2015 rules package for Sprint Cup Series competition. Ten Cup teams participated in the test.

“Our main goal is to harvest data today to help refine the 2015 package,” NASCAR Vice President of Innovation and Racing Development Gene Stefanyshyn said in Michigan on Monday. “We are listening to our fans; they have said they like a lot of passing, side-by-side racing and lead changes. That is what we are aiming to accomplish with these tests.”

The focus during the test was on “aerodynamics and power optimization,” according to a press release issued by NASCAR on Monday evening. Six different aero configurations were tested.

“We learned a lot today and were able to test a lot of our ideas,” Stefanyshyn said. “The race teams have shared their goals of having the new rules package in September, so that is one of the reasons we are here during the season at Michigan International Speedway working on our 2015 package.”

According to the NASCAR release, each team made more than 160 laps throughout the test and six car configurations were tested.

“We are looking at all the different options today, and I am glad we are doing it,” Hendrick Motorsports driver Kasey Kahne said. “It is neat that NASCAR has stepped up and is trying to find ways to improve.”

Talk throughout the NASCAR community also has NASCAR, possibly, going to smaller engines for next year, but new engine packages were not tested Monday at Michigan. Monday’s test was primarily about aerodynamics.
