Rain cancels Cup, Xfinity practice, qualifying at Auto Club Speedway
Persistent rain has forced NASCAR to cancel Saturday practice and qualifying for the scheduled Cup and Xfinity Series races at Auto Club Speedway.
The starting lineups for the two races were set by rulebook metrics. Christopher Bell will be on the pole for Sunday’s Cup race, and Austin Hill will start first in Xfinity.
The Xfinity race is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. (ET) Saturday. Rain is predicted in the afternoon in the track area.
Sunday’s Cup race is scheduled at 3:30 p.m. (ET).
