Friday marks the midpoint of the three-day racing weekend at Daytona International Speedway.

Because of Thursday’s rainout, the Sprint Cup Series will have a 45-minute practice session from 9:45 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. ET.

Later, both the NASCAR Xfinity Series and Sprint Cup Series have qualifying sessions.

Then, the first race of the weekend -- the Xfinity Series Subway Firecracker 250 -- is slated to take the green flag at 7:30 p.m. ET.
