Weekend schedule for Indianapolis

Get ready for a full weekend of racing as the ARCA Menards Series and the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series hit the track Friday at the Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park. The action continues Saturday and Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course with the NASCAR Cup Series and the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

There are only three races remaining in the Cup Series regular season. Twelve drivers (Martin Truex Jr., Denny Hamlin, William Byron, Christopher Bell, Kyle Larson, Ross Chastain, Kyle Busch, Ryan Blaney, Chris Buescher, Joey Logano, Tyler Reddick and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.) have clinched a spot in the Playoffs via wins.

With five races left in the Xfinity Series regular season, only three drivers have a guaranteed spot in the Playoffs – John Hunter Nemechek, Austin Hill and Cole Custer. Drivers can claim their spot by virtue of wins but they also have to finish the regular season and clinch on points.

The Truck Series Playoffs begin this weekend at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park with the Round of 10. They are led by Corey Heim with 2,030 points and include Zane Smith, Carson Hocevar, Christian Eckes, Grant Enfinger, Ty Majeski, Ben Rhodes, Nick Sanchez, Matt DiBenedetto and Matt Crafton.
