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


For anybody who’s asking “What time is the NASCAR race today,” the reply is just like the reply that has been given for most of the season.

The Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond Raceway is slated for a mid-afternoon inexperienced flag, which has been NASCAR’s most popular time window for Cup Series races to date in 2021.  

Richmond will likely be the ninth race this yr and the eighth scheduled for the daytime. Only the Martinsville race final weekend was scheduled for nighttime, and it wound up being largely run in the late afternoon on Sunday after rain in Stage 1 pressured a suspension on Saturday.

Below is all you must learn about the schedule for Sunday’s Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond.
