Despite the postponement, the Crayon 301 NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway will still not be shown live on NBC.

Following the annual switch from Fox, NBC’s portion of the NASCAR Cup Series broadcast schedule features the final 10 races of the regular season and all 10 races on the playoff schedule. However, not every single race is actually shown on NBC.

Half of those 20 races are shown on NBC and the other half are shown on USA Network, which replaced NBC Sports Network as the NBCUniversal-owned alternative broadcast network during NBC’s portion of the schedule after NBC Sports Network shut down at the end of 2021.

The Crayon 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway is one of the 10 races on USA Network’s schedule. It was scheduled to take place on Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. ET, but due to rain, it was postponed until Monday afternoon at 12:00 p.m. ET.

The schedule change for the 301-lap race around the four-turn, 1.058-mile (1.703-kilometer) Loudon, New Hampshire makes this race the fourth consecutive race to have its schedule changed in some way due to inclement weather.

You have to go back to the race at Sonoma Raceway on Sunday, June 11 to find the most recent NASCAR Cup Series race which did not have its schedule altered due to rain.

But despite the change, the Crayon 301 remains on USA Network as opposed to NBC. It is the third of five straight races on USA Network after NBC led off their portion of the broadcast schedule with two in a row.

In total, USA Network’s schedule includes six regular season races and the first four playoff races. NBC’s schedule includes four regular season races and the final six playoff races, including the Championship 4 season finale at Phoenix Raceway in November.

FanDuel Sportsbook, which is handing fans an instant $200 just for signing up and placing a single $20 bet, lists Joe Gibbs Racing’s Christopher Bell as the +450 favorite to win the Crayon 301. Bell is the reigning winner at the track and took the pole position on Sunday afternoon.
