Saturday’s NASCAR schedule at Richmond International Raceway


Saturday’s schedule at Richmond International Raceway was juggled due to Friday’s rain.

There will be only one final Sprint Cup practice session. Xfinity Series drivers — who were unable to take part in Friday’s two scheduled practices — will have just one practice session prior to the two previously scheduled qualifying heat races leading up to the Xfinity Series ToyotaCare 250.
