The rumble strip posed an issue during Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race on the 2.439-mile road course after a Lap 1 crash damaged the front end of a number of cars when they got off-course, including Brandon Brown, Harrison Burton, Kevin Harvick and Brandon Jones.

The Cup Series will be on track Sunday beginning with Busch Pole Qualifying at 9 a.m. ET on CNBC, IMS Radio Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, followed by the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard at 1 p.m. ET on NBC, IMS Radio Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
