NASCAR Champion Bobby Labonte Comments on NASCAR Testing Policy

"This is an unprecedented time in NASCAR. It makes sense that NASCAR had to do something different to try and help the teams. They (NASCAR) can't control the cost of the teams and what they spend, but I hope NASCAR can help control a major chunk until the storm is over- hopefully this rule will accomplish that.

"The effectiveness will be different for every team. If a team said 'Let's cut out testing and not spend that money on anything else,' the policy might work. Some teams are going to say 'We don't have any more money to spend in any area anyway.' It's the teams that have a surplus from not testing that will find other areas to invest that money. So everyone is going to benefit differently from it."
