A NASCAR Cup Series race was scheduled to take place for the fourth time in 11 days, until the Alsco Uniforms 500 was postponed to Thursday.
The abundance of live racing has been a welcome return to normality – or at least somewhat similar to normality – during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that closed most of the sporting world. But there is no rain. Several races have been interrupted or shortened by rain since the return of NASCAR, and it happened again on Wednesday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
NASCAR decided to postpone the Alsco Uniforms 500 one day, so it will now start at 7pm. On thursday.
What time does the NASCAR race start today?
- Meeting: Thursday, May 28
- Start time: 19:00 ET (19:25 pm ET green flag)
- television channel: FS1
- Live broadcast: Fox Sports Go | fuboTV (7-day free trial)
The Alsco Uniforms 500 was postponed on Wednesday and will now take place on Thursday, May 28 at 7pm. ET on FS1. For those without a cable, the race can be streamed on Fox Sports Go and fuboTV, which offers a free seven-day trial.
NASCAR initial training in Charlotte
Below is the full initial schedule for the Thursday night NASCAR Cup Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The top 20 places are an inversion of the top 20 in Sunday's race, and the bottom 20 are simply the top 20 in Sunday's race, with the exception of Johnson.
A note: Josh Bilicki and J.J. Yeley are switching drivers for the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday, so they fall in the back of the group before the start of the race on Wednesday night.
