Texas Motor Speedway is hosting the The NASCAR Cup Series this weekend for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 on Sunday, July 19th. NASCAR is continuing to implement strict protocol and safety measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 at the track. All events prior to the race have been cancelled, including practice and qualifying, due to these precautions.
Erik Jones in the No. 20 Craftsman Toyota Camry will be starting in the 23rd position for Sunday’s race. This will be Erik’s 7th start at Texas Motor Speedway, a track that he has enjoyed racing at in the past. The starting lineup was determined by a random live drawing that was aired on FS1’s “Race Hub”.
