Despite NASCAR's best track-drying efforts at Texas Motor Speedway, Saturday's first Sprint Cup practice was cancelled.

Saturday morning's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series practice session was cancelled after rains overnight and into the morning left the racing surface at Texas Motor Speedway very damp.

Air Titans and jet dryers worked on the racing surface for hours, but cool temperatures hampered the track-drying efforts.
