NASCAR’s Xfinity Series is in Austin this weekend, running the Pit Boss 250 at the Circuit of the Americas road course. It is the first road course of the season for NASCAR and all three circuits will be running at COTA.
The Pit Boss 250 runs on Saturday and qualifying precedes it on Friday. Qualifying starts at 7 p.m. ET on FS1 and will run approximately an hour. There will be two rounds of qualifying. In the first round, the field will be split in two. Each group runs single-lap, single-car qualifying runs. The five fastest in each group advance to a second round where those ten cars run again to secure pole position and positioning in the rest of the top ten.
