NASCAR’s national series will make their debuts on the Daytona road course this weekend. The Cup, Xfinity and Truck events will be held without any practice or qualifying.

NASCAR is prohibiting drivers from competing in more than one series this weekend on the Daytona road course in an effort to get extra track time. NASCAR states that is to make the event fair for everyone.

Sunday’s Cup race will be broadcast on NBC.

Here are the preliminary entry lists for the races at the Daytona road course

Friday crash and spin report for the Charlotte Roval

1 Comment

It was a busy day at Charlotte Motor Speedway with three practice sessions and Cup qualifying on the new Roval course.

It was especially busy for crew members who have to fix car bodies.

Here’s a look at what took place in each practice session and qualifying.

Cup qualifying

Denny Hamlin wrecked two minutes into the first round when he got loose in the backstretch chicane, clipped the tire barrier and backed into the outside wall. The team made repairs in time for Hamlin to make another run, but he will go to a backup car.

Shortly after Hamlin’s incident, Bubba Wallace spun in Turn 8, which exits on the oval’s Turn 1. He qualified 34th.

Erik Jones also clipped the chicane tire barrier during his initial, but was able to continue and qualified 12th.

Cup practice

The session was plagued by multiple incidents, with most coming in the first 10 minutes of the 50-minute session.

Aric Almirola backed into the Turn 3 wall about 3 minutes and 25 minutes into it. His team was able to make repairs.

Bubba Wallace spun twice and then a third time halfway through the session. Denny Hamlin suffered splitter damage from running over the rumble strips in the backstretch chicane.
