After a wild weekend at Martinsville, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is at Texas this weekend. Well almost everyone as driver Matt Kenseth serves a two race suspension.
The Sprint Cup Series brings along both the Xfinity and Camping World Truck Series along with it. On Thursday the Truck Series takes to the track for practice. On Friday all three series are on the track with the Trucks and Cup Series qualifying. Then later in the evening the Trucks take the stage with the WinStar World Casino 350WinStar.
