Due to earlier rains, plus the return of precipitation before Homestead-Miami Speedway could be fully dried, NASCAR has officially wiped out both scheduled practice sessions for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
In addition, since no practice was completed, NASCAR has officially cancelled Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series qualifying for the Ford EcoBoost 400 as well. The session, which was scheduled for 2:05 p.m. EST Saturday afternoon, would have taken place without any practice. As a result, NASCAR has decided to make the qualifying session into a 50-minute practice session. That session will begin at the same time that qualifying would have run. It will air live on NBCSN.
Since only 40 teams are entered in the Ford EcoBoost 400, no one will fail to qualify.
