Racingone Weekend Preview

After two straight weeks of short track battles, the NEXTEL Cup Series heads back to a superspeedway this weekend.

Sunday's Samsung/Radio Shack 500 will mark the 11th time NASCAR's top division has competed at the lightning-fast Texas Motor Speedway. And in ten years of competition, there have been ten different winners at the 1.5-mile track.

Greg Biffle looks to finally break into the win column this season and end the string of different winners by repeating last spring's Texas victory. Biffle's Roush Racing team has won five of the ten Texas races held since the inaugural visit in 1997.

RacingOne will carry Live Qualifying for the Samsung/Radio Shack 500 on Friday afternoon beginning at 4:30 p.m. (ET). Sunday's seventh race of the NEXTEL Cup Series season will take the green flag at 2 p.m. (ET) with television coverage by FOX and PRN handling the radio broadcast.

The Busch Series will take center stage at Texas on Saturday afternoon. The circuit will qualify on Thursday night and Saturday's O'Reilly 300 is slated for a 3 p.m. (ET) start (FOX/PRN).

Texas will host the second round of this year's IROC series on Friday night at 7 p.m. (ET). SPEED will carry the race live.

The NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series visits Sin City for this weekend's Nationals at the Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. ESPN2's coverage of final round eliminations begins Sunday night at 7 p.m. (ET).

The world famous Eldora Speedway will host two nights of World of Outlaws Sprints Car action on Friday and Saturday. With the National Sprint Tour idle, it will be interesting which drivers from the competing series come to Eldora for the weekend.
