Rain cancels NASCAR’s Friday on-track activity at Atlanta

Friday’s on-track activity at Atlanta Motor Speedway has been canceled due to weather in the Hampton, Georgia area.

All three NASCAR national series were scheduled to practice, starting with the Camping World Truck Series at 3:05 p.m. ET. The Xfinity Series was set for 4:05 p.m. ET, with the Cup Series wrapping up the day’s work at 5:05 p.m. ET.

NASCAR also canceled Saturday’s qualifying sessions in order to get practice in. Chase Briscoe will lead the Cup Series field to green Sunday. The lineup was set by the rulebook.

The Cup Series’ practice is now set for 12:40 p.m. ET on Saturday. The Camping World Truck Series (10:40 a.m. ET) and Xfinity Series (11:40 a.m. ET) will practice before.

Rain hit the newly repaved and reconfigured 1.54-mile track well before haulers unloaded and continued into the afternoon with no clearing in sight.

The forecast for the weekend looks much clearer than Friday’s radar.
