The third week of NASCAR’s playoffs sees drivers make their way to Charlotte once again, only this time with much less knowledge than they’ve had before.

This will be the first time NASCAR drivers will race on Charlotte Motor Speedway’s Roval, which is a 2.28-mile road course featuring 17 turns.

Drivers have had chances to practice on the course during the season, with some mixed results.

It’s the great unknown for drivers this week as the course will still incorporate Charlotte Motor Speedway’s standard oval, but it will be very different with the changes.

Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch are the lone drivers to have qualified for the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs by virtue of their wins in Las Vegas and Richmond. Kevin Harvick will get in by simply starting in Charlotte. 

But the rest of the field of 12 remains up for grabs, which will create an entertaining race in Charlotte.

The Bank of America Roval 400 can be seen at 2 p.m. ET Sunday on NBC.

Here’s the weekend schedule:
