New Stories

For those who are asking ”What channel is today’s NASCAR race on?” the answer is the one that will be given over the next few weeks.

The TV channel for Sunday’s NASCAR race is FS1. The network will air the Drydene 400 from Dover International Speedway. The race is the 13th of the NASCAR Cup Series 2021 season, and Fox or FS1 has been the channel for all 13 races.

Sunday’s race will start a bit earlier than the usual mid-afternoon time window for Cup Series events. The green flag is scheduled to drop at 2:11 p.m. ET. Dover does not have lights, although the weather is expected to cooperate and there should be enough time to complete the race before sunset.

Below is how to watch Sunday afternoon’s NASCAR Cup Series race, including the TV channel and live stream options:
