The NASCAR Xfinity Series is back in action on Saturday, August 14th with the Pennzoil 150 at the Brickyard, coming to us from Indianapolis’ road course. Qualifying for the race gets started at 10:05 a.m. ET and the green flag drops for the race at 4 p.m. Qualifying will air on Track Pass and the race will air on NBC Sports Network.

Pre-race qualifying is a rarity this year, taking place at only eight tracks. Each of the drivers will run a single lap and the fastest driver will claim the pole position. Qualifying will finish up before 11 a.m. ET.

The race is likely to finish up sometime in the 6 p.m. hour. This is only the second time Xfinity has run this race on the road course at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Traditionally, the race has been on the oval track. On the 2.5-mile oval track it was 100 laps, but on the 2.439-mile road course it is 62 laps. Last year was the first time it was on the road course and the 62-lap race lasted 2:02:48 with Chase Briscoe capturing the checkered flag.

Austin Cindric comes into Saturday as the favorite to win at DraftKings Sportsbook, installed at +180. A.J. Allmendinger (+220) is next, followed by Ty Gibbs (+450), Daniel Hemric (+1200), and Justin Allgaier (+1400).
