The NASCAR Xfinity Series is sticking with road-course action for the second weekend in a row, but this time, they will compete for the first time in series history on the Daytona International Speedway Road Course.

The UNOH 188 will kick off the historic weekend for all three NASCAR national series on Saturday afternoon (3 p.m. ET on NBCSN, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

The Xfinity Series competed at Road America last weekend, where road course ace Austin Cindric was victorious for the fourth time this season.

Luckily for the drivers, they are in road course mode right now having just competed on the Road America road course while the other two series competed at Michigan International Speedway last weekend. But Saturday’s race is going to be new and tricky for every driver entered. On top of the series never competing on the course, there has been a new chicane added in Turn 4.

The race will be 187.72 miles and 52 laps. The first stage will end on Lap 15 and the second stage will end on Lap 30. Cindric will lead the field to green from the pole.

Cindric and points leader Chase Briscoe both competed in GT races at the road course prior to the start of the Rolex 24 this season. Cindric has three Rolex 24 starts to his name.

AJ Allmendinger is a past winner in the Rolex 24 in 2012 and was the runner-up in 2006 and finished third in 2013.
