Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR's executive vice president and chief racing development officer, revealed Monday at Pocono Raceway that six cars were going to NASCAR R&D for inspection this week, providing the sanctioning body the chance to perform midseason evaluations to aerodynamics and the engines.

The six cars selected from the Pennsylvania 400, which was won by Chris Buescher, represent two each from the three OEMs: The #2 (Brad Keselowski) and #16 (Greg Biffle) from the Ford camp, the #11 (Denny Hamlin) and #18 (Kyle Busch) for Toyota and the #4 (Kevin Harvick) and #5 (Kasey Kahne) for Chevrolet.

Typically, NASCAR brings two or three cars to its R&D Center in Concord, North Carolina, for weekly inspections.
