Goodyear announced plans to test at six tracks between March and June.

Goodyear plans to test at Sonoma Raceway (March 25-26), Michigan International Speedway (April 8-9), Kansas Speedway (April 14), Dover International Speedway (May 6-7), Kentucky Speedway (May 20-21) and Chicagoland Speedway (June 10-11).

Teams scheduled to test at Sonoma will be those of Marcos Ambrose, Tony Stewart, Matt Kenseth, Jeff Gordon and Brian Vickers.

Teams scheduled to test at Michigan will be those of Clint Bowyer, Greg Biffle, Trevor Bayne, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Ryan Newman.

All organizations will be allowed to have one team at the April 14 test at Kansas Speedway.

Teams to test at Dover will be Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards and a Chevrolet team to be determined. Also, Nationwide, Camping World and K&N teams will be chosen to test.

The Kentucky test will feature teams from Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Camping World but those have yet to be determined.

Teams also have yet to bet determined for the Chicagoland test.

“We have a multitude of goals at these upcoming tests, including keeping up with changing track surfaces and staying in tune with NASCAR and the teams on car development under the 2014 rules package,” said Greg Stucker, Goodyear’s director of race tire sales, in a statement. “Further expansion of our multi-zone technology will be an element for evaluation at several of these tests. As always, our primary focus will be to come out of these tests with a durable race package while giving teams the appropriate amount of grip."
