NASCAR has added another electronic fuel injection test on November 15 at Daytona International Speedway.

As the sanctioning body prepares to implement EFI for the full 2012 Sprint Cup Series schedule, NASCAR continues the process of gathering information on the new system.

Teams took part in a test on Monday at Martinsville Speedway and will now have an opportunity at Daytona the Tuesday prior to the season-ending Ford Championship weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

NASCAR has so far been pleased with the progress made in testing the new system.

“I think most of the hurdles have been crossed with software and issues they had early on,” said NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton after the Talladega test ten days ago. “It looked to me like the cars were responding to changes. We didn’t have any issues on the track. It looked like a regular day at the race track for the most part.”
 
Sprint Cup teams will return to Daytona in January for the annual pre-season testing session prior to beginning the 2012 season with Speedweeks in February.

NASCAR slates fuel injection test at Daytona

... so, restrictor plates or no plates ... that is the question

I've not followed the EFI developments and wonder how this will affect racing at those tracks. This test hopefully will gives some answers.
