Discuss the upcoming NASCAR race weekend at Texas Motor Speedway and Michigan International Speedway here as all three of NASCAR's top series hit the track this weekend. While the Camping World Truck Series heads off to Texas to join the Verizon Indycar Series at Texas Motor Speedway, the Xfinity and Sprint Cup Series make their annual early summer stop at the blazing-fast confines of Michigan International Speedway. Hopefully the bad weather that plagued the two NASCAR races at Pocono last weekend will not affect any of the three big races taking place this weekend. Joining NASCAR's top-two series at Michigan this weekend is the ARCA Racing Series for the second straight week after running at Pocono last weekend.

The following information is credit to Jayski, MRN, and Fox Sports:

Can't believe that I forgot about the ARCA race again. Thanks for pointing it out, and I have updated the OP so it shows the race weekend schedule for the ARCA race along with the entry list, race logo, and last year's race (Youtube).

So far Saturday looks like the only iffy weather day. Scattered thunderstorms might start around 3. Not sure if they'll hit the track or not...

The even lower downforce package as I am calling is going to make this Sunday the most anticipated Michigan race in a long time.

5 races this weekend. IndyCar and Trucks in Texas. Cup, Xfinity, and ARCA in Michigan. This'll be a fun weekend, gotta record all but the Cup race though.

I live in Northern Illinois about 350 miles straight West of the track. Predicted high temps here for the weekend are mid to upper 90's. It will be a hot one!

Having a Crew Chief sit out because of the lugnut rule didn't hurt Kurt Monday.
