Saturday Nashville schedule for Cup and Xfinity

Nashville may be welcoming back the NASCAR Cup Series for the first time in 37 years, but as Nate Ryan explains, the history of racing and the "Music City" are inextricably linked.

A packed afternoon awaits Saturday as NASCAR continues its weekend at Nashville Superspeedway.

Shortly after lunch (or before lunch if you’re in Nashville), the Xfinity Series will go qualifying to set the field for its 250-mile race in the afternoon.

In between, the Cup Series will have its own practice session. Cup qualifying and racing are scheduled for Sunday.

All Cup and Xfinity sessions will air on NBCSN, as well as stream on and the NBC Sports app.
