What time is the NASCAR race?

There are just two more opportunities for drivers outside the playoffs to race their way into the postseason. The next chance comes this Sunday at the two-mile Michigan race track.

  • Race: FireKeepers Casino 400
  • Date: Sunday, August 22nd, 2021
  • Start time: 3 p.m. EST.
  • Location: Michigan International Speedway 

Kevin Harvick, who has yet to win this year, was victorious in the last three races at Michigan. He is inside the playoffs on points, but is not yet guaranteed a spot. Kyle Larson now leads the regular season standings after a chaotic race at Indianapolis.

Of note, COVID-19 protocols have sidelined Corey LaJoie for this race. He will be replaced by Josh Berry in the No. 7 Spire Motorsports entry.
