After an eventful race at Kansas, the NASCAR circus rolls into Darlington, South Carolina, one of its’ most iconic tracks. It’s also throwback weekend, meaning there are plenty of interesting paint schemes run across the three series. Darlington is in the playoffs for the Cup Series, meaning there is extra importance this weekend for those teams.

Here is how to watch all of the NASCAR action at Darlington this weekend.

Truck Series: Buckle Up South Carolina 200

When: Friday, May 12, 7:30 PM ET

Where to Watch: FS1 and the Fox Sports App.

Where to Listen: Sirius XM NASCAR radio channel 90, and on your local MRN radio affiliate. Find your local affiliate here.

What to Watch for: The Truck Series makes their lone trip to the “Lady in Black” this weekend. A track that is typically treacherous for young drivers combined with a young field means that this should be an interesting show. Four full-time Cup Series drivers are in the field including Bubba Wallace, Corey LaJoie, Ross Chastain, and William Byron.

Xfinity Series: Shriners Children’s 200

When: Saturday, May 13, 1:30 PM ET

Where to Watch: FOX and the FOX Sports App

Where to Listen: Sirius XM NASCAR Radio Channel 90, and your local MRN affiliate. Find your local affiliate here.

What to Watch for: The Xfinity Series comes to Darlington after an off-week. Ryan Truex will have the opportunity to defend his race win driving the 19 car at Darlington this weekend alongside Cup Series drivers on the entry list Ty Dillon, Kyle Larson, and Ross Chastain.

The Xfinity Series will come back to Darlington on Labor Day weekend in the second to last race before the playoffs. Potential must-win teams will place a large emphasis on this race to try to put themselves in position for that critical weekend.

Cup Series: Goodyear 400

When: Sunday, May 14, 3:00 PM ET

Where to Watch: FS1 and the Fox Sports App

Where to Listen: Sirius XM NASCAR Radio Channel 90, and your local MRN affiliate. Find your local affiliate here.

What to Watch for: Coming off of the chaotic weekend at Kansas, the Cup Series moves to its oldest track in Darlington. Defending Kansas winner Denny Hamlin has by far the best track record of anyone at Darlington with a sparkling average finish of 7.5. Ryan Newman also makes his return to the Cup Series driving the 51 car for Rick Ware Racing.

Darlington also serves as the playoff opener with the Southern 500 on Labor Day weekend. With this in mind, teams know they need to hit the setup well at Darlington to get their playoffs started off on the right foot in September.

Darlington is always a highly anticipated weekend, and it almost always puts on a good show. Who will be the driver that puts on the best show at Darlington?
