What time does the NASCAR race start today? TV schedule, channel for Las Vegas race

The NASCAR Cup Series’ 2021 spring western tour will begin Sunday with the Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The Cup Series held the first three races of its ’21 season at Daytona International Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida. As with the Homestead race, the Las Vegas race will be run on a 1.5-mile intermediate track.

The starting lineup for Sunday’s race will be led by Kevin Harvick, who earned the pole position for Sunday’s race based on the formula NASCAR uses for races without qualifying. The driver of the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford finished fifth in last weekend’s race, the Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and is second in the Cup Series point standings after three races.

Joining him on the front row will be Hendrick Motorsports’ William Byron, who drove off to victory at Homestead — his second career Cup Series win.
