Chase drivers can't attend Homestead test

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR will not allow championship-eligible drivers to participate in a Goodyear tire test at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

But, to ensure fairness, NASCAR will allow all organizations represented in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship to participate in the Aug. 26 test because Homestead is the site of the title-deciding season finale.

Teams will have to send a driver not qualified for the Chase to the tire test.

The restrictions create a dilemma for Team Penske, which has both Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano already qualified for the Chase. The two-car team does not have another Sprint Cup driver on its roster.

Hendrick Motorsports also has three of its four drivers qualified. Should Kasey Kahne qualify for the Chase, Hendrick would have to look outside its immediate organization for a substitute.
