In the discussion of shorter sporting events, Saturday's 55-lap Xfinity race on the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval lasted 1 hour, 32 minutes and 35 seconds.
It was 13 minutes shorter than the Michigan race in June - what had been the shortest Xfinity race of the year. Saturday's race on the Roval also was the first time any of the four road course events this season needed less than two hours to complete.
Steve O'Donnell, executive vice president and chief racing development officer for NASCAR, stated after the race that the Xfinity Roval event would have more laps next year.
