FORT WORTH, Texas – NASCAR took six cars to a wind tunnel for testing after Sunday’s O’Reilly 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

These were the cars: The Fords of Kevin Harvick (second) and Joey Logano (sixth); the Chevrolets of Chase Elliott (11th) and Jamie McMurray (third); and the Toyotas of Kyle Busch (first) and Erik Jones (fourth).

NASCAR didn’t divulge the location of the wind tunnel.

In a statement, NASCAR said, ''As we’ve done in the past, NASCAR will capture cars from each manufacturer for the purposes of a wind tunnel test. We feel this is an appropriate time in the season to do so.’'
