Yeah, XFinity after the Cup race, which seems odd

They couldn't squeeze it in before cup, or is the weather still around?

Probably that they don't want people who paid half the price for the Xfinity race staying on and getting a free Cup race too boot, so stick the Xfinity on after and only let people in with Xfinity tickets after the Cup race has completed.

That's how I'd do it anyway.

It actually doesn't. If you can't get rid of the Xfinity ticket people for the Cup race, how will you get rid of the Cup ticket people for the Xfinity race?

I'd say it's all down to TV window. Fixed time slot for the Cup race to start. It happens in MotoGP these days, if there is a major delay in Moto3, the Moto2 race is shortened or put behind the MotoGP race which can't be delayed no matter what.

Maybe yup, or it is just better that the guy who paid for example (I really have no idea how tickets costs) for the Cup ticket 50$ and stays for xfinity free than the guy who pays 25$ for xfinity and then stays for cup free :lol:

30,000 people at a cup race would look better with the 500 people that bought stand alone tickets.

here's an idea - lower ticket prices and more people might actually show up

In the past they've always put the Xfinity race after the Cup race. I think the last time was Talladega in the early 2010s.

If they could race the way they do after the restarts the whole race this would be a really entertaining race
