DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - There's a buzz at Daytona International Speedway and it's more than the cars humming around the track.
A three-day testing session that concludes Saturday brought fans to the storied speedway a full month before the season-opening Daytona 500 on Feb. 20. They were treated to autograph sessions, question and answer forums, and, of course, practice laps from every driver in attendance.
For new track president Joie Chitwood, it was the perfect kickoff for what he hopes is a frantic month of ticket sales leading into NASCAR's biggest race of the season.
But NASCAR is not likely to allow any more testing. This week's action was permitted only because Daytona was recently paved and teams needed a chance to try the new asphalt.
