Tuesday test notes at Sebring.

- The second day of pre-event testing began under hot and humid conditions.

- No. 6 McDonough took part in the first session, after repairing the damage to his car in Monday testing overnight.

- No. 37 Dona elected not to take part in Tuesday's test, after running in all four sessions on Monday.

- No. 5 Burkett, No. 11 Rubenzer, No. 33 Fanelli and No. 97 Hodges participated in Tuesday's test, having missed Monday's test.

- In the first of three sessions, several drivers reported less grip than Monday. It is believed this is due to the increase in temperature and more oil and grease from the numerous series taking to the track.

- The first session was briefly halted when No. 97 spun and was unable to restart.

- No. 44 Smith did not participate in Tuesday testing, as the team worked on fixing a mechanical problem.

- The second session of the day once again saw an increase in temperature, slowing the cars.

- Late in the session No. 97 spun and stalled halting the session.

- Late in the day the final pre-event test session was run. With the reduced temperatures the Zetec Championship cars posted the fastest times of the day.

- Several cars went off course during the second of testing, though no major damage was reported.

- The season officially begins Wednesday at 8:00 a.m., with a 30-minute practice session.
