Saturday will be a rather busy day for the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Xfinity Series at Phoenix International Raceway.
Sprint Cup drivers that qualified Friday will have two practice sessions — one starting in the late morning (ET) and another in the mid-afternoon — to get things just right for Sunday’s CampingWorld.com 500 at the one-mile flat track.
The Xfinity Series, meanwhile, will qualify at 12:45 pm ET, and then compete in the 200-lap Axalta Faster Tougher Brighter 200.
Here’s how Saturday’s schedule shapes up:
(All times listed are Eastern)
9 am – Xfinity garage opens
10 am – 6:30 pm – Sprint Cup garage open
11:30 am – 12:25 pm – Sprint Cup practice (Fox Sports 1/MRN)
