CONCORD, N.C. – All track activity on Friday at Charlotte Motor Speedway has been cancelled due to weather that’s impacting North Carolina.

The NASCAR XFINITY Series Drive for Cure 300 presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina that was slated to be run tonight has now been rescheduled to 11 a.m. ET on Sunday morning. The race will broadcast live on the NBC Sports Network (NBCSN) and the Performance Racing Network (PRN).

Fans that have purchased tickets to Friday night’s NASCAR XFINITY Series race will of course be admitted on Sunday. The event is the final Round of 12 Chase race for the series, and Kyle Larson will lead the field to the green flag after the starting lineup was set by the rule book. Joe Gibbs Racing’s Erik Jones will start in second, alongside of Larson.

As for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, there were two practice sessions that were cancelled for Friday. Luckily the series was able to complete Coors Light Pole Qualifying on Thursday night. Kevin Harvick won the pole, and Alex Bowman will start second on the front row. The Bank of America 500 will continue as scheduled. Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race will broadcast live on NBC and PRN at 7 p.m. ET.
