NASCAR will stage its highly anticipated race at the ever-famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway this Sunday. Here’s everything you need to know about how you can watch all the action.

Indianapolis’ Motor Speedway is now the home of the Verizon 200

It was back in 1994, when NASCAR took its drivers and cars to the world-renowned Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Known as the Brickyard 400, the high-octane event has been staged every year since, however, in 2022 things will look at little different. Now called the Verizon 200, the 2.439-mile run, the race is most definitely a different look to the traditional oval track course of 2.5 miles. That’s all to say, that when this coming Sunday rolls around, be prepared for an afternoon of speed, thrills and all the action that you’d normally associate with the most famous raceway in the country.

Who is racing in the Verizon 200?

What makes Sunday’s race all the more intriguing, is the fact that almost the entire field of drivers have never had the opportunity to face such a track configuration before. While it’s true, that NASCAR’s current No. 1, Chase Elliott, was involved in last Saturday’s action at the Xfinity Series race at the said same track, where he finished fourth, it counts for little. Indeed, the top four finishers in Saturday’s race will all be on the course on Sunday, including Xfinity winner Austin Cindric, who races part-time in the Cup Series.

Who’s the favorite in Sunday’s race? To be frank, while Martin Truex Jr. had the fastest time in practice on Saturday, along with Hendrick Motorsports teammates William Byron and Kyle Larson, who were second and third quickest respectively, the reality is that Elliot will still be regarded as the favorite in the race. Interestingly, Cindric was fifth-fastest, while the winner of the first Xfinity Series race at the track, Chase Briscoe, was seventh-fastest. Be that as it may, the pair have raced on this configuration before, which is to say that experience will likely be a major factor in the event regardless of their latest positions.

How does the Verizon 200 affect NASCAR standings?

To be clear, should a driver such as Briscoe take the checkered flag on Sunday, the ripple effect will be huge. Where the hunt for playoff spot is concerned, such a result would be monumental, even more so when considering the fact that 12 of the 36 cars in Saturday’s Xfinity race failed to finish the race. The course promises chaos and so be prepared. Elliot has shown a capacity to dominate road courses in the past, so there is that, but one way or another, fans are sure to be in for quite a ride with the Verizon 200 gets underway on Sunday

How to Watch the Verizon 200?

With a start time of 1:00 p.m. ET, you’ll want to have an early lunch if you want to be ready for the action when it gets off and running. If you’d like to watch it on TV, then be sure to check out NBC. On the other hand, if you’d like to stream the event, then you will want to have a look at FuboTV.
