NASCAR is heading down to the Kansas Speedway for the next race in the Cup Series Playoffs. To begin things, we have the Xfinity Series Kansas Lottery 300, which will air on NBC. To wrap up race weekend, the Cup Series will run the Hollywood Casino 400 and will be on NBC Sports at 3 p.m. ET. Each race is the second of three races that make up the round of eight in the respective playoffs. The championship is set for the first weekend in November.
