NASCAR Completes Two-Day Phoenix Test

AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- NASCAR Sprint Cup teams completed testing
Wednesday at repaved and reconfigured Phoenix International
Raceway.

Thirty-five teams hit the mile oval on the second day of the
test in preparation for the Kobalt Tools 500 on Nov. 13, the ninth
event in the 10-race Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship.

The new configuration also features variable banking, a longer
dogleg and improved pit road.

The 47-year-old track was last repaved 20 years ago.
