What time does the NASCAR race start today? TV schedule, channel for Ruoff Mortgage 500

The 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season is starting out similarly to the 2021 season: three races, three different winners.

Last weekend, it was that “hack” Alex Bowman winning at Las Vegas to join Austin Cindric and Kyle Larson. The Hendrick Motorsports driver doesn’t get a lot of credit for his wins (he now has seven for his career); he’s seen as being extremely lucky. Last weekend, he took the lead after a late caution and pit strategy and held on.

He’ll take the victory just the same, seeing as how it got him into the Cup Series playoffs. He’ll try to be the first repeat winner in the series this year as NASCAR goes to Phoenix Raceway on Sunday. 

Here is everything you need to know about the race, the Ruoff Mortgage 500, including the start time and TV channel for the race.
