Weekend schedule for Las Vegas

This weekend the NASCAR Cup Series and the Xfinity Series travel to Las Vegas Motor Speedway as the Playoffs continue with the first race in the Round of 8.

Last week at the Charlotte ROVAL, four Cup Series drivers were eliminated from championship contention – Brad Keselowski, Ross Chastain, Bubba Wallace and Kyle Busch. We also saw four Xfinity Series drivers whose championship hopes came to an end – Daniel Hemric, Parker Kligerman, Josh Berry and Jeb Burton.

The ARCA Menards Series West will join Friday night’s lineup with the Star Nursery 150 (Bullring) while the CRAFTSMAN Truck Series takes the weekend off before they return to completion on October 21 at Homestead-Miami Speedway for the series final race in the Round of 8.

NASCAR PressPass will be available throughout the weekend.

All times are Eastern.
