NASCAR will be at Michigan International Speedway this weekend with four races on the docket. The Cup Series and Xfinity Series continue their playoff pushes, while the Truck Series kicks off its 10-driver playoff. There will be no qualifying this week due to COVID-19 so it will just be the one day of racing for each circuit.

The Cup Series is running the FireKeepers Casino 400 on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network. This is the second to last race of the regular season. Kyle Larson has the points lead heading into the weekend and is starting in the pole position.

The Xfinity Series is running the New Holland 250 on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network. Austin Cindric has the points lead heading into the weekend and is starting the pole position. Including this race, there are five remaining before the 12-driver playoff gets underway.

The Truck Series kicks off its 10-driver playoff on Friday with the Toyota 200. John H. Nemechek is the points leader heading into the playoffs, but Austin Hill claimed pole position for the race. Only 10 drivers are competing in the playoff, but we’ve got a 40-driver entry list.
