The CUP Series was idle this past weekend but the other two NASCAR top series were scheduled to fill the void with Saturday night/Sunday afternoon racing. Some practicing was held on Saturday at the Iowa Speedway but heavy rain with lightning strikes cancelled the rest of the schedule, including the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series qualifying and the 200-lap M&M's 200. This turned Sunday into a NASCAR double-header with trucks, followed by the XFINITY Series qualifying and, finally, the NXS 250-lap CircuitCity.com at the 0.875-mile oval in Newton, IA. Next Sunday, June 23, the CUP series goes road course racing with the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway in California. The results and upcoming scheduled events for the NASCAR Home Tracks and other series are also shown below.
