NASCAR At Atlanta Qualifying Time, TV Info And More

Friday is the first busy day at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in its big Labor Day Weekend. NASCAR's three national divisions will get their qualifying started for the AdvcoCare 500, which was won by Jeff Gordon a year ago for his 85th Sprint Cup win. Aside from that, there's the Grit Chips 200 (or to use its full, proper name, the Jeff Foxworthy's Grit Chips 200). That's the Camping World Truck Series, where Ron Hornaday Jr. will look to continue his dominance.

The Nationwide Series gets underway as well, but on Saturday, with the NRA American Warrior 300, with the winner likely taking the green flag a little under 24 hours later in the Advocare 500. Kyle Busch, an Atlanta racer and someone who has dominated the NNS in the past, will be taking part and is seeking his first ever Atlanta win in it.

It all gets started with a practice at 10:00 a.m. for a practice in the Grit Chips 200, with a televised practice on the Speed network at 1:00 p.m. ET. The first qualifying of the day will be for the Grit Chips 200 at 4:30 p.m., with qualifying for the Advocare 500 coming at 6:00 p.m. ET. The day's Speed coverage will wrap up following the full Grip Chips 200, which starts at 7:30 p.m.
