On Saturday, the Camping World Truck Series went north of the border to the 2.459-mile road course at Ontario’s Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (CTMP) for the Chevrolet Silverado 200. The XFINITY Series ran its VFW Sports Clips Help a Hero 200 on Saturday at Darlington Raceway in South Carolina. On Sunday, the Sprint Cup Series drivers took their turn trying not get a “Darlington Stripe” at the 1.366-mile oval for the Bojangles’ Southern 500.
