Tony's In Phoenix

Goodyear is conducting a tire test Monday and Tuesday (August 29-30) on Phoenix International Raceway's new surface, with NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers #48-Jimmie Johnson, #14-Tony Stewart, #99-Carl Edwards, #22-Kurt Busch and #18-Kyle Busch participating. The testing sessions will be closed to the general public.

Not a good time to be here, over 110 today. Even I'm very tired of the heat. I can't imagine being in a cup car here right now. Additional track time is good, but not so sure any of them are going to appreciate it this week.
