The busy NASCAR weekend kicks off today on two different fronts.

The NASCAR Cup Series has two practice sessions at Sonoma Raceway in California, about 40 miles north of San Francisco.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series has two practice sessions at Iowa Speedway. That’s also the site for the Camping World Truck Series, which has two practice sessions followed by qualifying and then this evening’s M&M’s 200 race. William Byron won this race last year.
