NASCAR At Texas Motor Speedway: Race Weekend Schedule

This weekend's NASCAR schedule at Texas Motor Speedway is fairly unusual – and not just because it's a Saturday night race for the first time in the track's history.

The practice and qualifying schedule is a bit wacky as well. Qualifying is on Friday night, and there are only two Sprint Cup Series practice sessions: One on Thursday, one on Friday.

Check out what we're talking about below.
