Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The schedule for the weekend of NASCAR action at Phoenix International Raceway.

The Chase for the Sprint Cup is nearing its end, as Sunday presents the penultimate race of the 36-race season and the 10-race Chase with the AdvoCare 500 at Phoenix International Raceway. Jimmie Johnson overtook Matt Kenseth with a dominant victory at Texas last time out, but Kenseth can regain his lead with a win, and both should be in the running headed into race No. 10, unless Johnson seals another dominant victory on Sunday.

That race is set for Sunday at 3 p.m. ET, with a green flag of approximately 3:15 p.m., according to But it's not the only thing worth watching on the weekend, as there is a full slate of races, and of course qualifying and practice.

Friday will host Sprint Cup Series practices from 1:35  to 3:30 p.m., and then qualifying at 5:40 p.m. They'll then break for a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, the Lucas Oil 150. Saturday, two more practices for the AdvoCare 500 will take place, the first between 11:30 a.m. and 12:25 p.m., and the second between 2:30 and 3:25 p.m. The latter practice will be the final practice for the race.

At 4 p.m. on Saturday, the NASCAR Nationwide Series will host its own penultimate race, the Servicemaster 200. The AdvoCare 500 will be the main attraction on Sunday, beginning at 3 p.m. as previously mentioned.
