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

Few racers have had as much success at Dover Motor Speedway as Martin Truex Jr. The Joe Gibbs Racing star has the highest average finishing position at Dover among active drivers, according to Motor Racing Network.

Truex will hope to add to his legacy at the “Monster Mile” during Sunday’s DuraMAX Drydene 400.

It will take a lot of work, admittedly. Hendrick’s trio of Alex Bowman, Kyle Larson and Chase Elliott secured first, second and third place, respectively, in last year’s race. All three are expected to compete at the front of the pack once more this time around.

Still, if Truex can find his form, it could make for an interesting finish. The 41-year-old driver is currently No. 8 in the Cup Series rankings. A good showing at Dover could easily push him up the leaderboard right as the Cup Series starts to approach its crescendo.

Here’s all the information you need to watch Sunday’s race at Dover Motor Speedway, including the TV channel and start time.

What channel is the NASCAR race on today?

  • TV channel: FS1 (U.S.) | TSN5 (Canada)
  • Live stream: Fox Sports Go, fuboTV

After moving to Fox for last week’s Geico 500 in Talladega, the NASCAR Cup Series returns to FS1 for the broadcast of the DuraMAX Drydene 400. Sunday’s race will be on TSN5 in Canada.

Mike Joy will call lap-by-lap action, and he’ll be joined by analysts Clint Bowyer and Larry McReynolds, who is joining the Fox Sports broadcast team as the network’s guest analyst. Fox has been rotating analysts throughout the season to replace Jeff Gordon, who left to work with Hendrick Motorsports. Last week, the network brought in racing legend Dale Earnhardt Jr, who typically works for NBC.

Those hoping to stream the race can find it on Fox Sports Go or via fuboTV, which offers a free trial.

Sunday’s race is listed as beginning at 3 p.m. ET, but with prerace ceremonies, the green flag is scheduled to be waved at 3:20 p.m. ET.
