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

With just three races left in the regular season, the Cup Series is fast approaching its climax.

That’s what makes this week’s race in Richmond, the Federated Auto Parts 400, so important. Last week, drivers like Kevin Harvick and Bubba Wallace, two racers who had not yet reached the checkered flag this season, risked everything to try and secure their spot in the Cup Series playoffs.

Harvick still had a little more in the tank to finish, and passed Wallace on dramatic final laps to claim victory – his sixth at Michigan Raceway.

“Anyone who doubted us doesn’t know us,” said Harvick after the race. “A lot of things happened for us today that we didn’t have all year.”

Wallace, who finished third, was in tears by the end of the race. The 23XI Racing driver claimed his fourth straight top 10 result. But he’s still looking for that elusive victory to become the 16th racer to qualify for the Cup Series playoffs.

The No. 23 driver wasn’t particularly successful on Richmond’s egg-shaped tarmac — his best on-track performance was a 12th place finish at the 2019 edition of the Federated Auto Parts 400. But maybe Wallace can find a little magic under his floorboards and pull it off a fantastic achievement as he becomes the 16th rider to secure his spot in the Cup Series playoffs.
