NASCAR Cup Series practice and qualifying is set to take place during an eclipse
The stars are set to align in Las Vegas, Nevada. A solar eclipse is set to take place during NASCAR weekend.
It won’t happen again for 25 years. And this time, it will take place at the exact same time as NASCAR is on track during a playoff weekend.
The NASCAR Cup Series and Xfinity Series will race this weekend at the 1.5-mile of Las Vegas Motor Speedway. On Saturday morning, the NASCAR Cup Series will roll to the track for practice and qualifying.
The session will be interesting as it will take place during the solar eclipse. The moon will pass between the Earth and the Sun, blocking sunlight in Las Vegas.
