Weather Causes Cancellation of Qualifying for Sam’s Town 300

March 8, 2013 by  

Weather conditions forced NASCAR officials to cancel Nationwide Series practice this evening at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. As a result, Saturday’s qualifying session for the Sam’s Town 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race has been cancelled. The Sam’s Town 300 starting line-up will be determined by the rule book, using 2012 team owner points to set the field.

Saturday’s schedule has been revised. NASCAR Nationwide Series teams will practice from 8-9:15 a.m. on Saturday morning. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is scheduled to practice twice, from 9:40-10:40 a.m. and 11:35 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The Sam’s Town 300 is scheduled to start at 1:15 p.m.

Sunday’s schedule for the Kobalt Tools 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series has not changed.
