NASCAR heads to Kansas Speedway this weekend for the first of two trips this season to the 1.5 mile tri-oval. The Craftsman Truck Series and Cup Series will be in town with the Xfinity Series on an off week. Due to its’ second date being the second race of the playoffs for the Cup Series and an elimination race for the Truck Series, this weekend becomes that much more important to drivers and teams.

Could this be a preview of what could be seen come playoff time? If you want to find out, we have you covered right here!

Craftsman Truck Series: Heart of America 200

When: Saturday, May 6, 8:00 PM EDT

Where to Watch: Live TV coverage of the event will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1 and the Fox Sports App.

Where to Listen: Live Radio Coverage will be on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio Channel 90, or on your local MRN affiliate. Find your local affiliate here.

What to Watch: The Truck Series has not raced since April 14 at Martinsville, so that means there should be some aggressive and antsy drivers come Saturday night. The winners of the last two intermediate track races this season in the Truck Series (Kyle Busch and Carson Hocevar) are in the field. Ross Chastain also will be in the field racing for Niece Motorsports.

Cup Series: AdventHealth 400

When: Sunday, May 7, 2:00 PM EDT

Where to Watch: Live TV coverage of the event will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1 and the Fox Sports App.

Where to Listen: Live Radio Coverage will be on Sirius XM NASCAR Radio Channel 90, or on your local MRN affiliate. Find your local affiliate here.

What to Watch: A short turnaround to the Cup Series takes them to their third intermediate track race of the season. Kyle Busch (Auto Club) and William Byron (Las Vegas) won the first two, and, based on the speed shown at Dover, Byron should figure to be a major factor. Kevin Harvick is another driver to watch as the active driver with the most wins, best average finish, and most laps led at the track.

Here are some drivers to watch this weekend.

NASCAR kicks off an exciting month of May with Kansas followed by highly anticipated events Darlington, the reinvigorated North Wilkesboro, and the Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte. Sunday also marks the 1/3 mark of the season with the playoffs inching ever closer.
