Friday NASCAR schedule at Circuit of the Americas

Is the next gen car the Cup equalizer and the main reason for the early-season parity or is the influx of young talent in the series most responsible? The Motormouths crew discuss how the unknown affects things on track.

The first road course action of the season will take place Friday at Circuit of the Americas.

The Camping World Truck and Xfinity series will hit the track for practice and qualifying at the 3.41-mile track in afternoon sessions while Cup teams prepare for the weekend in the garage area.
