After an unforgettable weekend, for both good and bad reasons, at the Chicago Street Race, the NASCAR circus rolls into both one of its’ most historic venues and one of its newest. The Cup and Xfinity Series move to Atlanta Motor Speedway while the Craftsman Truck Series moves to the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Here is how to watch these events this weekend.

What to Watch For: The Truck Series is down to only three more races before the Playoffs. with every driver with a win officially locked in. The points battle is incredibly intense with five drivers within 14 points of the playoffs as follows: Matt Dibenedetto (+14), Matt Crafton (+10), Nick Sanchez (+6), Stewart Friesen (-6), and Tanner Gray (-6). A total of 39 Trucks are entered in the race with notables including former full-time IndyCar driver Marco Andretti, and short track star Dale Quarterly.

What to Watch For: The Xfinity Series rolls into Atlanta for the second time this season, and there are 10 races remaining until the Playoffs. The Playoff grid is a bit more spread out on the bubble with Riley Herbst having a 26 point hold on the final Playoff spot. A total of 38 cars are entered including the March Atlanta race winner Austin Hill and ARCA Menards Series Daytona winner Greg Van Alst.

Cup Series: Quaker State 400

The bubble currently sits as follows: Bubba Wallace (+15), Ty Gibbs (+6), Daniel Suarez (-6), Michael McDowell (-10), A.J. Allmendinger (-24), Alex Bowman (-26). A total of 37 drivers are entered with the lone non-chartered entry being Austin Hill for Beard Motorsports.

It should be a fun weekend with a little something for everybody that is a NASCAR fan. There is road course action and superspeedway action, plus all three series are racing. It should be a fun race.
