Pressured water under the race track forced quick repair during the only NASCAR Cup Series practice session
Kansas Speedway has been hit with a very unique situation all morning. First heavy rains and lightning delayed the installation of the inspection tent. That created a line at the inspection tent ahead of practice.
The weather all rained out the morning truck series session. As a result, the schedule was condensed for the MENCS field. NASCAR made post-qualifying practice and pre-qualifying practice into a single session. The new 2.5 session is now the only session, it’s ahead of practice.
In addition to that, there was a new bump in turns 3-4. Multiple drivers were complaining as they all tore the splitters up. NASCAR elected to throw the yellow and do some track repairs, which you can see below.
Watch the video of the repair below.
