Eight drivers remain alive in the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series playoffs, and they’ll hit the track at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Saturday for qualifying ahead of Sunday’s 4Ever 400. Qualifying gets started at 9:50 a.m. ET and will air on USA Network.

If you’re unable to watch qualifying, we’ll be providing live updates of the two-round process. Qualifying will last a little over an hour. The first round will see the field split in half. Group A drivers will run one lap of single-car qualifying and the five fastest drivers will advance to the second round. Group B drivers will then follow and the five fastest drivers will advance to the second round. The group of ten will then compete for pole position down through the tenth position. The remaining drivers will be slotted into the starting lineup starting at 11 based on their first round qualifying time.
