JTG Daugherty Racing driver Bobby Labonte recently commented on NASCAR's decision to reduce the size of the restrictor plate for the upcoming three-day test session at Daytona International Speedway. Since Labonte tested on the newly paved surface last month during a Goodyear tire test, his No. 47 Toyota Camry team has opted not to test this month.

"When we tested during the Goodyear tire test at Daytona, I could see the speeds of two cars that got together being high," said Bobby Labonte. "When you get to actually racing, things always go a little faster. I think making the restrictor plate smaller is a deal where NASCAR was foreseeing that speeds would be really high.

"With a smaller restrictor plate, I think it will be similar to what you see at Talladega," continued Labonte. "The handling affect will be gone. The throttle response will be a little less for us and it might be harder to complete the pass. Daytona has been historically a handling track the past 15 to 20 years that I've been down there. I think fans will see the race coming down to cars being bunched up in the right line, getting the right push from somebody, clearing the pass and blocking more like we see at Talladega. It's hard to believe Daytona is just around the corner. I'm really looking forward to getting the season started with JTG Daugherty Racing."
