Racingone Weekend Preview

A NASCAR tripleheader in the "Valley of the Sun" headlines the weekend calendar at Phoenix International Raceway with the Craftsman Truck Series, Nationwide Series and Sprint Cup Series all in action.

Carl Edwards looks to slice further into Jimmie Johnson's lead as the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship races into its second-to-last event of the season.

Edwards pulled within 77 points of the lead after his victory in Texas last week.

However Johnson has been as hot as the Arizona weather in Phoenix and has won the last two races at the one-mile desert track including last April's visit.

RacingOne will have comprehensive of the Phoenix weekend beginning with Friday's Live Qualifying session for the Checker Auto Parts 500 beginning at 5:45 p.m. ET.

Friday night the torrid Craftsman Truck Series championship resumes with Johnny Benson clinging to a six point lead over defending series champion Ron Hornaday coming into the Lucas Oil 150 (7:30 ET-SPEED/MRN).

Clint Bowyer has a 91 point lead over Carl Edwards in the Nationwide Series with two races left in the season including Saturday's Hefty Odor Block 200 (3:30 p.m. ET - ESPN2/MRN).

Sunday's Checker Auto Parts 500 is slated for a 3:30 p.m. ET and will be carried live by ABC and MRN.
