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 Jayski.com. 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.
