The answer to the question: “What channel is NASCAR racing on today?” is the same as the answer to the question last weekend.
The television channel for Sunday’s NASCAR race is Fox. The network will broadcast the Dixie Vodka 400 from Homestead-Miami Speedway. The Homestead race is the third race of the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season, and Fox has been the channel for all three races (having previously shown the Daytona 500 and the O’Reilly Auto Parts 253).
Sunday’s race will have a start time later than the first two races of the season: the green flag must drop at 3:48 p.m. ET.
Here’s how to watch Sunday afternoon’s NASCAR Cup Series race, including the TV channel and live streaming options:
What channel is NASCAR available on today?
Fox will broadcast Sunday’s race, the third of the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season. Fox and Fox Sports 1 are expected to broadcast NASCAR Cup Series races in the first four months of the Cup Series schedule, through June 13 star race in Texas. NBC and NBC Sports Network are expected to broadcast the remaining races in 2021, including the playoffs.
As with all Cup Series races on Fox this season, Mike Joy will call the race with help from analysts Jeff Gordon, Clint Bowyer and Larry McReynolds.
What time does the NASCAR race start today?
- Dated: Sunday February 28
- Start time: 3:30 p.m. ET
The green flag for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway is expected to drop at 3:48 p.m. ET. Fox NFL analyst Jonathan Vilma, a Coral Gables native who played college for Miami, will wave the green flag. Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will give the command to start the engines remotely via video.
Weather is a regular concern with NASCAR races in Florida, but this weekend can be an exception. The National Weather Service Sunday forecast for Homestead, Florida., is for sunny skies and temperatures in the low 80s. The only threat to drivers may be wind; the NWS calls for southeast winds of 11 to 20 mph, with gusts of up to 24 mph.
NASCAR Live Stream for the Homestead Race
Anyone with a cable or satellite subscription can live stream the Sunday afternoon NASCAR race at Homestead through FoxSports.com or the Fox Sports Go app.
For those without a cable or satellite subscription, there are seven OTT (over-the-top) TV streaming options that offer Fox and FS1 – Sling, Hulu, YouTubeTV, fuboTV, Vidgo, AT&T Now and TVision. Of the seven, Hulu, YouTubeTV, and fuboTV offer free trial options.
