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

The NASCAR Cup Series season is already working toward a fever pitch after two weeks. Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s heart-racing overtime victory at Daytona was followed by a comfortable Kyle Busch dub at Fontana, his first win as a Richard Childress Racing driver.

The action should pick up further with the circuit at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for this weekend’s Pennzoil 400. Known as the Diamond of the Desert, Las Vegas’s 1.5-mile intermediate track features inch-tight turns and a surface that can get especially testy in dirty air.

Alex Bowman took the checkered flag in last year’s running of the race, holding off Kyle Larson to hit the jackpot. The field should be just as competitive this year, especially with the likes of Bowman, pole-sitter Joey Logano, Ross Chastain and Daniel Suarez putting together solid runs early in the campaign.
