What time does the NASCAR race start today? TV schedule, channel for 2023 Atlanta race

William Byron is on a roll.

The Hendrick Motorsports talent is on a two-race winning streak, cementing his status as one of the sport’s most exciting young talents.

That may not be reflected in the standings, though. Byron, Alex Bowman, Kyle Larson and Justin Haley were docked 100 regular season points and 10 playoff points after it was found that their crews made modifications to their racers’ louvers. That pushed Byron from fourth place in the points standings to 29th.

It’s not a great place to be, admittedly. Still, wins are wins. And Byron is as hot as any driver in the Cup Series slate.

He’ll hope to add to his gleaming run with a strong showing at Atlanta Motor Speedway, a site he fared well in last year — Byron won last year’s iteration of the Ambetter Health 400. 

If he can put another ace display on at “The Fastest Track in the South,” it’ll be hard to deny his status as one of this year’s biggest contenders.

With that, here’s what you need to know about Sunday’s race at Atlanta, including start time and broadcast information.
