Saturday will be a rather busy day for the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Xfinity Series at Phoenix International Raceway.

Sprint Cup drivers that qualified Friday will have two practice sessions -- one starting in the late morning (ET) and another in the mid-afternoon -- to get things just right for Sunday’s 500 at the one-mile flat track.

The Xfinity Series, meanwhile, will qualify at 12:45 pm ET, and then compete in the 200-lap Axalta Faster Tougher Brighter 200.

Here’s how Saturday’s schedule shapes up:

(All times listed are Eastern)
