What time and channel is the NASCAR playoffs at Bristol

Four drivers are set to be eliminated from the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series playoffs at Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend.

What time is the NASCAR race?

The 2021 playoffs continue with yet another night of short track action at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The half-mile will host all three national divisions with the Truck Series going green Thursday at 9:18 p.m. EST. immediately following the ARCA Racing Series. The Xfinity Series will go green Friday at 7:47 p.m. EST. But what about the Cup Series?

  • Race: Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race
  • Date: Saturday, September 18th, 2021
  • Start time: 7:30 p.m. EST.
  • Location: Bristol Motor Speedway

The last race at Bristol not run on dirt was won by Kevin Harvick. But the Busch brothers are going to be the ones to watch this weekend. They lead the field with wins at BMS with 14 victories between them, and both are just above the cut line.

Those in the drop zone are Alex Bowman (-0pts), Tyler Reddick (-5pts), William Byron (-18pts), and Michael McDowell (-38pts).
