NASCAR at Kentucky 2015: Weekend practice, qualifying and race times


This weekend all three of NASCAR’s top series will be in action at Kentucky Speedway.

With the Sprint Cup Series running the Quaker State 400 the talk of Kentucky has been dominated by rules changes. However, there will be plenty of action on Thursday with the Camping World Truck Series running the UNOH 225 and on Friday as the Xfinity Series takes the stage.

Simply scroll down for a list of the NASCAR weekend schedule at Kentucky which includes the practice, qualifying and race time for all three events at the 1.5 mile track located in Sparta, Kentucky.

This is the only track on the Sprint Cup Series schedule which has not seen Jeff Gordon go to victory lane. Given that this is his last chance at the track, will Gordon be able to end his career with a win at every track?
