    NOTE: As of posting this thread, the Xfinity race has no sponsor for the event, hence why I used the "2017 NXS 300" term for all of the Xfinity practices/qualifying along with the race. I will be updating the OP whenever a sponsor is found for the event (if one does sign up to sponsor).

    WESLEY'S NASCAR WEEKEND EXTRAVAGANZA!

    Will be there all weekend! Have some pit passes and GA seats for Saturday, and my buddy got me a seat with his family on Sunday. My one fun weekend of the year. Absolutely love that it starts off my spring break this year, so I can recover for the rest of the week.

    Now to get over this cold...

    Is the first practice on Friday going to be televised? Just wondering since there was no channel listed.

    Posted in the wrong thread. Oops. While I'm at it, here's the drivers' thoughts on Radioactive.

    Sorry about that. In my haste to publish the thread I ended up not seeing that I had forgotten about that. I have fixed the OP (thanks for pointing it out).

    The OP has been updated with the new sponsor for the Xfinity race this weekend. The name has been changed from the 2017 Xfinity 300 to the 2017 Service King 300 at Auto Club Speedway.

    NASCAR Penalties:

    - Paul Wolfe will serve a three race suspension for the #2 failing post-race rear alignment measurements. He's also been fined $65,000 and the #2 team has been docked 35 points. Brian Wilson will serve as interim crew chief for Brad Keselowski starting this weekend.

    - Rodney Childers will serve a one race suspension for the #4 having an unapproved track bar slider assembly. He's also been fined $25,000 and the #4 team has been docked 10 points. The unapproved part was found during inspection at the NASCAR R&D Center.

    Also, Austin Dillon will face no behavior penalties for his contact with Cole Custer under caution during the XFINITY Race at Phoenix.

    As much as I hate seeing my driver get penalized, I am SO SO SO glad that points penalties actually mean something this year for guaranteed Playoff drivers. In the past years of the 16-driver playoff they would literally mean nothing in the regular season.

    Assuming Keselowski keeps running as well as he has, he'll be in the mix for the points lead all the way through Richmond. 35 points could be the difference between getting 15 Playoff Points or 10 or fewer Playoff Points. That is HUGE.

    Edit: That penalty pushed Brad from being 6 back of Larson to 41 back. Pretty big deal.

    Follow up from the penalties, Stewart-Haas Racing will appeal the penalties and have had the suspension deferred by NASCAR until the appeal is heard.

    If they rented from Rush Truck Centers and Jones beats Bowyer on Sunday I think Rush might regret that move. Coulda kept the competition out

    Ganassi is looking really, really good this year. Maybe McMurray can get a win this year?

    What has been the deal with inspections so far? Another long line again. Too many guys pushing the limits.

    Another qualifying session with at least 1/4 of the field still in inspection when the track goes green.
