NASCAR announced today its 2010 testing policy for its three national and two regional touring series.

The policy will again prohibit testing at tracks which host NASCAR national series events, by teams in the following series: NASCAR Sprint Cup; NASCAR Nationwide; NASCAR Camping World Truck; NASCAR Camping World East; and NASCAR Camping World West.

In 2010, however, testing will be allowed at NASCAR-sanctioned tracks that host a regional touring event but do not host a national series event. Based on this season’s regional tour schedules, the following tracks would be eligible to host tests next year:

Greenville-Pickens Speedway; Tri-County Motor Speedway; South Boston Speedway; Thompson International Speedway; Music City Motorplex; Adirondack International Speedway; Lime Rock Park; Thunder Hill Raceway; All American Speedway; Madera Speedway; Douglas County Speedway; Toyota Speedway at Irwindale; Portland International Raceway; Miller Motorsports Park; Colorado National Speedway.

    Uh, it’s not Music City Motorplex anymore. This year it was called Fairgrounds Speedway at Nashville. And I’m not sure why it would have been excluded from testing, because they were not a NASCAR affiliated track this year.

    It would be nice if the track did get some testing next year. But the future of the track (and the fairgrounds) is still in doubt. Nashville’s mayor has announced that there will be no state fair next year. Conventional wisdom holds that the city will sell the land to a developer and they’ll bulldoze the fairgrounds, the track, and the grandstands (part of those grandstands came from another track that is no longer in existence, Ontario Motor Speedway).

    It would be a shame to lose this track; I’d really like to see the racing community get behind the effort to save it.
