The 2.4-mile Charlotte Motor Speedway 'roval' layout will be utilized in next year's playoff race at the track.
Over the course of two days this week, teams will test several tire options provided by Goodyear. Three different chicanes will also be experimented with as NASCAR and CMS perfect the layout ahead of the September, 2018 race.
Former Monster Energy Cup Series champion Kurt Busch will be participating, as is Martin Truex Jr., Jamie McMurray and Paul Menard.
The race will be just the third road course on the MENCS calendar and the first one ever scheduled during the final ten championship races. The Cup Series also visits Sonoma Raceway and Watkins Glen International each summer.
