Spoiler undergoes test at Talladega

NASCAR may have planned its Talladega Superspeedway test primarily to collect data to determine gear specifications and restrictor plate size for next month's Aaron's 499 at the track. However, most eyes seemed to be on the spoiler that was also put to the test at the track on Tuesday.

NASCAR's Vice President of Competition Robin Pemberton said that it was "an opportunity for teams to work on their handling packages as we transition to the spoiler."

NASCAR announced prior to the start of the season that sometime during 2010, the wing currently on the rear of the Sprint Cup car would be done away with and the series would return to a rear spoiler. No official announcement has come from NASCAR regarding the date of the spoiler's return to competition, but speculation is that the spoiler will make its return for the March 28 race at Martinsville Speedway.
