Friday’s schedule for Sprint Cup, Xfinity at Richmond International Raceway

1 Comment

Friday is going to be a very busy day at Richmond International Raceway. Because it’s a two-day race weekend, what teams typically do in most usual three-day race weekends will have to be condensed into only two days.

Friday will see just one Xfinity Series practice, along with two Sprint Cup practices, Xfinity and Sprint Cup qualifying and, later in the evening, the ToyotaCare 250 Xfinity Series race.

Here’s Friday’s entire schedule at Richmond:


7 am – Xfinity Series garage open

8:15 am  10:25 am – Final Xfinity practice (No TV)

9 am – 9 pm – Sprint Cup garage open

11 am – 12:25 pm – Sprint Cup practice (Fox Sports 1)

1 pm – 2:25 pm – Sprint Cup final practice (Fox Sports 1)

2:30 pm – Sprint Cup qualifying inspection begins

3:45 pm – Xfinity Series qualifying (Fox Sports 1)

5:15 pm – Xfinity driver/crew chief meeting

5:45 pm – Sprint Cup qualifying (Fox Sports 1/MRN)

7 pm – Xfinity driver introductions

7:30 pm – Xfinity Series race – ToyotaCare 250 (250 laps, 187.5 miles) (Fox Sports 1/MRN)
