Bear in mind that starting times listed for NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series races are actual starting times. Usually, FOX Sports begins pre-race coverage at least 30-60 minutes prior to each race. The new standardized starting times are 2:00 PM ET for day races taking place in the east and mid-west, 3:00 PM ET for day races taking place in the west, and 7:30 PM ET for most night races. So for a day race in the east that starts at 2:00 PM ET, the Invocation should start at about 2:02 PM ET. So don't be late!

Just to keep all the FOXs straight, when I make reference to the FOX Network, I am referring to the channel that they broadcast the Cup series on, which is the same channel that they broadcast "American Idol" and "The Simpsons" on. The FOX Network is a broadcast television channel. And then there is FOX Sports 1 (FS1) and FOX Sports 2 (FS2), both of which are cable-only channels. Got it?
And to keep the various NBC channels straight, when I make reference to the NBC Network, I am referring to the channel that you watch the "Today Show", "The Voice", and "Saturday Night Live" on. Most NBC Network affiliated channels are broadcast television stations. And when I make reference to NBCSN, that is the acronym for the NBC Sports Network, which is a cable channel. It is conceivable that a race could show up on other NBC sister cable channels along the way, like CNBC, an NBC-owned cable channel, to accommodate rainouts. Copy that?
I will post the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying order every week, as soon as it is available.
