Three races remain on the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series playoff schedule, and all three are set to be broadcast live on NBC as opposed to USA Network.
There are just three races remaining on the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series playoff schedule following last Sunday afternoon’s round of 8 opener at Las Vegas Motor Speedway: two in the round of 8 and one at Phoenix Raceway to crown a champion.
For the second time in the last three years, Hendrick Motorsports’ Kyle Larson became the first driver to clinch a spot in the Championship 4 by winning the round of 8 opener. After doing so at Texas Motor Speedway in 2021, he went on to win the title by winning the season finale at Phoenix.
The two races remaining in the round of 8 are scheduled to take place at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday, October 22 and at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday, October 29, and the Championship 4 is scheduled to take place at Phoenix on Sunday, November 5.
All remaining NASCAR Cup Series races this season are set to be broadcast on NBC as opposed to USA Network.
USA Network replaced NBC Sports Network as the NBCUniversal-owned alternative broadcast network during NBC’s portion of the broadcast schedule after NBC Sports Network shut down at the end of 2021. The network is responsible for 10 of this year’s 20 races following the switch from Fox to NBC in June.
Six of those 10 races were regular season races, and the other four led off the playoffs. The three most recent playoff races were all on NBC, which broadcasted just four of the final 10 regular season races, and the remaining three are all set to be on NBC as well.
All three of these races are set to begin at different times. The Homestead race, the 4Ever 400, is set to be broadcast live beginning at 2:30 p.m. ET, while the Martinsville race, the Xfinity 500, is set to be broadcast live beginning at 2:00 p.m. ET.
The NASCAR Cup Series Championship Race at Phoenix is set to be broadcast live beginning at 3:00 p.m. ET.
