Hopefully the NASCAR Cup Series teams got their rest these past two weeks because it’s full steam ahead for the rest of the racing season until it culminates at Phoenix in November.
The Cup, Xfinity and Camping World Truck Series will all be at the Nashville Superspeedway in Lebanon, Tennessee.
On track action kicks off Friday at 4 p.m. ET with the CWTS practice and qualifying. Then, at 5:35 p.m. ET, the NXS gets 50 minutes of practice followed by 50 more for the NCS at 6:30 p.m. ET.
At 8 p.m. ET, the CWTS will line up, pray, sing and fire the engines for their 150-lap “Rackley Roofing 200."
Coverage gets a little tricky now that NBC has taken over their part of the schedule. The CWTS activities, including qualifying and racing, will be on FS1, as the Trucks have a year-long coverage contract with FOX Sports.
Both the NXS and NCS practices will be on the USA Network, an a NBC property, after NBC Sports ended in 2021. All radio coverage will be on MRN/SiriusXM Ch 90.
Saturday, qualifying for the NXS will start at 12 p.m. ET followed closely by the NCS qualifying at 1 p.m. ET. At 3:30 p.m. ET, the NXS drivers will strap in and run their 188-lap “Tennessee Lottery 250."
All coverage will be on the USA Network for TV and MRN/SiriusXM Ch 90. for radio.
Sunday, the NCS takes center stage for their 300-lap “Ally 400” at 5 p.m. ET.
Coverage will be on the NBC Network featuring Dale Earnhardt Jr., Steve Letarte, Rick Allen and Jeff Burton in the booth.
Will the racing be as good this year on the concrete 1 1/3 oval, or will it be one of this year’s hoe hum races? Will one person get the lead and “stink up the show” by running away with the lead?
Tune in or head west with your ticket to find out.
