Social Roundup: Cup teams take part in Las Vegas test

We’re now 18 days away from the Daytona 500 and 11 days away from the Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona International Speedway.

But NASCAR racing is already here.

Multiple Cup teams are taking part in a two-day test at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and we have the video and pictures to prove it.

Darrell Wallace Jr. was first on track in Day 1 of the test. It’s his first action as the full-time driver of the No. 43 Chevrolet.

Apparently, the rookie driver for Richard Petty Motorsports was a little eager to burn rubber.

Ryan Newman had the fastest lap time early, but rookie William Byron went to the top within two hours in his first track time in the No. 24 for Hendrick Motorsports.
