Sprint Cup and Xfinity cars are on track today at Richmond International Raceway in preparation for this weekend’s races. While teams practice — and Cup teams are scheduled to also qualify — the biggest challenge could be the weather.

The wunderground.com weather site calls for at least a 40 percent chance of rain from 11 a.m. through the day.

Here’s today’s schedule:
