NASCAR tests spoiler at Talladega Superspeedway

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - NASCAR is testing spoilers at Talladega

Twenty-five Sprint Cup teams are at Talladega on Tuesday to
practice with a spoiler on cars in place of the rear wing. The
all-day session started with single-car runs, then switched to a
drafting practice. Speeds topped 200 mph.

That required NASCAR to call the teams into the garage to change
to a smaller restrictor-plate in an effort to decrease speed.

The spoiler could replace the wing by next week's race at
Martinsville Speedway.
