NASCAR testing at MIS

It was the first time any of them had driven MIS since it was repaved last fall.
While they weren't necessarily trying to set a new track record, unofficially they did. All of them. The drivers tweeting they topped out around 215 to 216 miles per hour.
"I'm not sure I want to know I'm going that fast," said Gordon. "I am not a big fan of repaves, so the fact that I am talking positive about it and still enjoying the racetrack as much as I always have, I think that is a sign where I rank it. I rank it very high."
Former IndyCar driver Montoya, agreed with Gordon.
"This place is fast. I mean fast, fast," said Montoya. "For a car like this, it is really, really quick. It is a lot of fun. I think as the track links up I think it is going to bring great racing. That is pretty good.â??
