The annual summer trip to Bristol is already here, as it will be another busy week in Thunder Valley. For the fourth time all season, all three NASCAR divisions will be on hand at the half-mile high banked Tennessee track, as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers will race on Wednesday night, the NASCAR X-Finity Series drivers racing on Friday night and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers racing on Saturday night.
It all starts on Wednesday though as the Truck teams will hit the track for the first practice at 9:30 am ET. They will practice, qualify and race all in the same day.
Then on Thursday, the X-Finity Series drivers will take to the track for two practice sessions starting at 1 pm ET. On Friday, the Sprint Cup drivers will have two practice sessions then qualify, followed by the X-Finity Series race.
On Saturday, it’s the big one, it’s the Sprint Cup race under the lights.
