NASCAR Cup Series drivers are scheduled to practice and qualify Saturday for Sunday’s 400-lap, 300-mile race at Richmond Raceway.
The practice and qualifying sessions are scheduled to begin at 5:05 p.m. and will be televised by the USA Network.
Also on Saturday’s schedule at the track are practice and qualifying for the Camping World Truck Series and an 8 p.m. race for the trucks.
A focus for Cup drivers this weekend will be the final spot on the playoff grid. Kevin Harvick won last Sunday at Michigan International Speedway to become the season’s 15th winner (and thus the 15th driver on the playoff list). Ryan Blaney currently holds the 16th spot via points.
If a non-winner finishes first in any of the final three races of the regular season, he would fill the remaining spot.
Saturday’s Cup practice and qualifying and Sunday’s race will be televised by USA Network.
Saturday: Sunny. High of 81.
