What channel is NASCAR on today? TV schedule, start time for Kansas race

For those who are asking “What channel is today’s NASCAR race on?” the answer is different than the one given the weekend before.

The TV channel for Sunday’s NASCAR race is FS1. The network will air the Buschy McBusch Race 400 from Kansas Speedway. The race is the 11th of the NASCAR Cup Series 2021 season, and Fox or FS1 has been the channel for all 11 races. Fox broadcast last weekend’s race from Talladega.

Sunday’s race will start in the usual mid-afternoon time slot for Cup Series events. The green flag is scheduled to drop shortly at 3:13 p.m. ET (2:13 p.m. CT). Kansas has lights, so NASCAR can race into Sunday night if there is a long delay (more on that below).

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