NASCAR cancels qualifying as Hermine approaches
DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) NASCAR has postponed all track activity Friday and canceled qualifying for its Sprint Cup and Xfinity races at Darlington Raceway in anticipation of Hermine bringing inclement weather to the South Carolina track.
Hermine on Thursday strengthened into a hurricane.
Both the Sprint Cup Series and the Xfinity Series had scheduled practices on Friday and were supposed to qualify on Saturday. However, in the revamped weekend schedule, both series will line up the field based on points in the standings.
The Xfinity Series race is scheduled for Saturday afternoon, while the Cup race is scheduled for Sunday evening.
