2012 Samsung Mobile 500: Weekend Schedule

It's NASCAR week at the Texas Motor Speedway, and we're nearing the beginning of the weekend festivities, which will culminate with the 2012 Samsung Mobile 500 on Saturday night.

On Thursday, drivers will get to take their first practice runs at Texas Motor Speedway. Gates will open for fans at 4 p.m. CT. The Sprint Cup Series practice will begin at 4:30 p.m. CT and end at 6:30, before giving way to the NASCAR Nationwide Series drivers at 6:40.

Friday will be a busy day at Texas Motor Speedway. NASCAR Nationwide Series qualifying will begin at 4:05 p.m and will be televised on ESPN2. The Sprint Cup Series drivers will then hold their own qualifying at 5:40 p.m. After that, fans will get to watch the first race of the year at Texas Motor Speedway: the NASCAR Nationwide Series O'Reilly Auto Parts 300, which has a scheduled start time of 7:30 p.m. CT.

Saturday is the main event though, as the 2012 Samsung Mobile 500 will start at 6:30 p.m. CT, weather permitting.
