|No practice could spell trouble|
NASCAR announced Saturday morning the Cup Series will no longer hold practice at Talladega Superspeedway before the GEICO 500 on June 21.
The original weekend schedule included a practice June 20, the Saturday prior to Sunday’s main event. That will no longer be the case, as NASCAR officials think the current format with no qualifying or practice is working well and has still created competitive racing.
Here is the updated Talladega schedule:
Saturday, June 20
11-11:30 a.m. — ARCA practice
2 p.m. — ARCA race
5:30 p.m. — Xfinity race
Sunday, June 21
3 p.m. — Cup race
