For those who are asking, “What channel is today’s NASCAR race on?” there is a familiar answer.
The TV channel for Sunday’s NASCAR race is Fox. The network will air the Coca-Cola 600 from Charlotte Motor Speedway. The race is the 15th of the NASCAR Cup Series 2021 season, and Fox or FS1 has been the channel for all 15 races.
Sunday’s race is one of the few night races on this year’s schedule. The Coca-Cola 600, one of the crown jewels of stock car racing, will start at its usual time on Memorial Day weekend. The green flag is set to wave after 6 p.m. ET.
