The NASCAR Monster Energy Cup and the Xfinity Series head to Kansas Speedway for playoff races this weekend.

Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400, the sixth of 10 NASCAR Cup playoff races, wraps up the Round of 12. After the checkered flag falls, four of the 12 remaining playoff drivers will be eliminated.

Kevin Harvick won this race last fall, while Martin Truex Jr. won there in May.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series returns to action with Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 300, the first of three races in the Round of 8. Kyle Busch won this race last year.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is off this weekend and returns next weekend at Martinsville.
