NASCAR Sprint Cup teams are off this weekend, their last break before an uninterrupted 17-weekend grid from the July 31 Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway to the Nov. 20 season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. This weekend marks the last of Sprint Cup's three breaks since the season opened at Daytona International Speedway in mid-February.

The Camping World Truck Series has a 150-lap, 200-mile race on Friday at Nashville Superspeedway at 8 p.m. Eastern. This is the 12th of the series' 25 races on the 2011 calendar.

The Nationwide Series runs a 225-lap, 300-mile race Saturday at the 1.333-mile track in Lebanon, Tenn. Teams will qualify on Saturday and run their 20th of 34 races at 7:30 p.m. The Federated Auto Parts entry list shows Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards as the only drivers from the Sprint Cup garage entered in this race, giving Nationwide regulars one of their few good chances to win this year.

The Sprint Cup Series races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 31 for the 18th-annual Brickyard 400. The Camping World and Nationwide teams have races that same weekend on Friday and Saturday at Lucas Oil Raceway at Clermont, Ind., just outside Indianapolis.
