Due to Hurricane, NASCAR Events Cancelled Friday, Qualifying Waived Off Saturday

With inclement weather expected at Darlington Raceway due to the advancing Hurricane Hermine, NASCAR has postponed all at-track activity for Friday.

The NWS is forecasting severe weather from the hurricane in South Carolina on Friday, with rain fall expected to be anywhere between 4-8 inches. Isolated tornadoes and high winds will affect the track, so NASCAR decided to cancel any activity on Friday in a way to keep fans away and in a safe place.

The series will open the weekend on Saturday now, with having a 55-minute X-Finity Series practice on Saturday morning followed by two Sprint Cup practices.

Qualifying will be cancelled with lineups being determined by owners points.

Saturday’s schedule will be as follows:
— 9-9:55 a.m.: NASCAR XFINITY Series final practice, NBCSN/NBC Sports App

— 11 a.m.-12:25 p.m.: NASCAR Sprint Cup Series practice, NBCSN/NBC Sports App
