NASCAR is headed to Daytona International Speedway this weekend to close out the Cup Series regular season and move a step closer to the Xfinity Series playoffs. 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 closes out its regular season with the Coke Zero Sugar 400 on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET on NBC. The race will be available via live stream at NBCSports.com/live. Kyle Larson has what appears to be a fairly secure lead atop the playoff race. Denny Hamlin is the favorite to win at DraftKings Sportsbook, installed at +750.

The Xfinity Series is running the Wawa 250 on Friday at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network. The race will be available via live stream at NBCSports.com/live. Including this race, there are four remaining for the Xfinity Series. Austin Cindric has a fairly secure points lead atop the standings. He, Justin Haley, A.J. Allmendinger, and Christopher Bell are co-favorites to win at DraftKings Sportsbook, installed at +800.
