Three upcoming Goodyear tire tests and accompanying NASCAR open tests will allow fans into the grandstands to see at least some of the action.

The first test will be Tuesday and Wednesday at Richmond International Raceway. While the track will be closed to fans Tuesday, it will be open Wednesday as teams prepare for the April 25th Toyota Owners 400.

Among drivers scheduled to take part in the RIR test Wednesday: Jeff Gordon, Brad Keselowski, Tony Stewart, Clint Bowyer, Kyle Larson, Denny Hamlin, Austin Dillon, Trevor Bayne, Aric Almirola and Casey Mears.

Fans can watch the action in the RIR grandstands from 10 am to 5 pm ET. Enter Gate 70 only.

The following week, there will be a three-day test at Kentucky Speedway from April 13-15.

Teams expected to take part include Richard Childress Racing, Chip Ganassi Racing, Roush Fenway Racing and Michael Waltrip Racing. The names of drivers taking part have not been announced yet, but at least one driver from each team will take part, according to NASCAR rules.

Kentucky Speedway officials said fans will be able to watch all three days of testing from the Turn 3 viewing area adjacent to the administration building and gift shop.

The last test of the month will be a three-day event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway from April 27-29.

Teams slated to take part are Hendrick Motorsports, Furniture Row Racing, Richard Petty Motorsports and BK Racing. As with Kentucky, names of the drivers taking part have not been released.

Fans can watch the IMS test only on April 29, starting at 10 am ET.
