Statement from Daytona International Speedway President Robin Braig on the cancellation of January NASCAR testing

"Due to the new NASCAR testing policy, there will be no January testing at Daytona International Speedway in 2009. We support NASCAR in trying to help with expenses across the board for everybody involved in the sport. DIS will continue to be busy during the months of December and January as we're hosting ARCA RE/MAX Series testing, Daytona KartWeek By Cometic Gasket and Rolex 24 At Daytona testing.

In addition, we will continue to work with NASCAR in an effort to promote DIRECTV Speedweeks and the start of the NASCAR season. Without testing, this will give us the opportunity to put more focus on promoting the upcoming Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 24-25 as well as DIRECTV Speedweeks and the 51st annual Daytona 500 on Sunday, Feb. 15."

Ticket holders to any of the NASCAR Preseason Thunder Fan Fest events will be contacted by the Daytona International Speedway ticket office for refunds or they can call 1-800-PITSHOP to inquire about their purchase.
