Weekend schedule for Las Vegas

All three NASCAR national series will compete at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend.

Kyle Larson hopes to make it two in a row after his Cup Series victory last week at Auto Club Speedway. AJ Allmendinger is leading the way in the Xfinity Series driver standings and the defending race winner and the Camping World Truck Series returns to the track after a week off from competition.

The Cup Series practice sessions will be handled differently at Las Vegas to give the drivers and teams extra time on the track. The full field will practice for about 35 minutes instead of being split into two groups as we will see at most ovals this year.

Single car, single-lap qualifying will immediately follow practice and cars will be split into two groups. The top five drivers from each group will advance to a second round of single-car, single-lap qualifying to determine who will win the pole position.

Press Pass Live will be available throughout the weekend.

All times are Eastern.
