Three XFINITY Practices Washed Away at Kentucky Speedway

Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks

The drivers and crews of the XFINITY Series will have to do a bit of guesswork in their preparation for the Alsco 300 at Kentucky Speedway, as all three scheduled practice sessions for the race were rained out on Thursday (Jul. 6).

Patches of rain was the story of the day at Kentucky. Whenever the Air Titans would take to the track during a dry stretch, Mother Nature would swoop back in to thwart the efforts to get the sessions in.

As a result of the rain, NASCAR has rescheduled the third practice session for Friday.  Teams will get 85 minutes of practice starting at 8:30 a.m.  That will be all the on-track time allotted prior to qualifying.

Qualifying for the event will be Friday (Jul. 7) afternoon at 4:30 p.m. and will air live on NBCSN. 43 cars are entered for the 40-car show.

The Alsco 300 is set for Friday night at 8:15 p.m., where the 39 other competitors will try to unseat defending race winner Kyle Busch. Additionally, rookie William Byron will attempt to win his third consecutive race.

The event will air on NBCSN and the Performance Racing Network.
