NASCAR has scheduled a test July 17 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, the day after the Cup race.

NASCAR has been working on a new splitter and it will be tested there. The intent is to enhance the racing at short tracks.

“Might not be able to be implemented in 2023 just because there is a lot of production following that,” said Mike Forde, managing director of racing communications at NASCAR, on this week’s NASCAR on NBC podcast about the new splitter.

Forde went on to say that “we feel pretty good about (the new splitter). The CFD modeling we’ve done on this, from my understanding … it’s pretty promising. So we’re excited about that.”

Christopher Bell, Harrison Burton, William Byron, Justin Haley, Ryan Preece and Erik Jones will compete in a two-day test at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Monday, July 17 and Tuesday, July 18.
