For Hometown News

DAYTONA BEACH - Preseason Thunder, the annual three-day NASCAR Sprint Cup Series test session at Daytona International Speedway will be Jan. 10-12.

The test sessions mark the first time the new 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series cars, which highlight greater brand identity for the manufacturers, will turn laps on DIS' 2.5-mile tri-oval.

The new-look cars will conduct test sessions between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. each day, weather permitting.

'Daytona Preseason Thunder is an exciting time for both the teams and the fans as NASCAR begins the roll out of the new 2013 car,' DIS President Joie Chitwood III said.

Race fans can also rev up their new year at the Daytona Preseason Thunder Fan Fest - the companion event to the January test sessions. Along with watching Daytona Preseason Thunder track activity from the Sprint FANZONE, fans can enjoy Fan Fest on Thursday, Jan. 10 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.

The schedule of driver question-and-answer and autograph sessions will be finalized closer to the event. Tickets for the Daytona Preseason Thunder Fan Fest, which include autograph session wristbands, will be available for purchase at a later date.

For fans who would like to be contacted regarding Daytona Preseason Thunder Fan Fest ticket information can sign up online at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com/thunder.

Fans can also watch each day's testing at no cost from a section of the Oldfield Grandstands.

The Roar Before The Rolex 24, the tune-up session for the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series and Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge teams in advance of the 51st anniversary of the Rolex 24 At Daytona, is scheduled for Jan. 4-6. Ticketholders for the 2013 Rolex 24 At Daytona will be admitted free for testing.
