Like other sports, in-person NASCAR races have been canceled for several months. In their place, the organization has been doing virtual races where the drivers race using a simulation rather than behind the wheel of actual cars . Today; however, NASCAR is back with its first in-person race since the COVID-19 pandemic.
The race, the Real Heroes 400, will be held at Darlington Raceway today at 3pm ET on FOX. The drivers will be there in person, but there will be no fans allowed in the stands.
While coverage begins at 3pm, healthcare workers across the country will be the ones to give the command for drivers to start their engines at 3:42, and the race will officially start at 3:53.
The race is 293 laps, which equals 400 miles in total.
If you want to watch, the easiest way is to simply tune in to the FOX broadcast via your cable subscription or digital antenna. If you don’t have a television, you can also watch online through most major streaming services, and all of them offer free trials if you haven’t taken them out for a spin just yet.
It’s worth pointing out that FOX isn’t available via every streaming service in every market, so if you’re signing up expressly to catch the race then you’ll want to make sure FOX is supported in your market before you do. Here’s a rundown on all your options in terms of streaming as well as how much they’ll cost if you do forget to cancel that subscription:
Hulu with Live TV $54.99 per month
YouTubeTV $49.99 per month
AT&T TV Now $50 per month
FuboTV $55 for the first month
Sling TV – $20 for the first month
