NASCAR At Darlington: 2011 Weekend Schedule

As you know, it's Mother's Day Weekend (well, at least we hope you knew that...if not, run to the Hallmark store NOW!) – and that means it's Southern 500 Weekend at Darlington Raceway.

The Southern 500 used to mean Labor Day Weekend, of course. But times have changed – the track also used to have two races per season – and the "Lady In Black" now gets her moment under the lights on the Saturday night before Mother's Day every year.

Here's the NASCAR schedule for the 2011 Darlington Raceway weekend (all times Eastern):

FRIDAY

8:30 a.m. – Nationwide Series final practice (2 hours, 30 minutes)

11:30 a.m. – Sprint Cup Series practice (2 hours)

2:15 p.m. – Sprint Cup Series final practice (45 minutes)

3:35 p.m. – Nationwide Series qualifying

5:10 p.m. – Sprint Cup Series qualifying
