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

Drivers weren’t able to compete at Auto Club Speedway in 2021 because of COVID-19 restrictions, but this year, NASCAR is heading back to Fontana, Calif.

The Cup Series season season continues Sunday with the Wise Power 400 following an exciting Daytona 500 finish last week. Austin Cindric held off Bubba Wallace in that race to take the checkered flag and top spot in the Cup Series standings.

Can Cindric keep the momentum rolling? Or will another driver bump him down the leaderboard?

Here is everything you need to know about the Wise Power 400, including the start time and TV channel for the race.
