2022 NASCAR at Indianapolis - Start time, how to watch, entry list & more

NASCAR takes on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course for Round 22 of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season..

It's been quite the week for NASCAR, including a thrilling race at Pocono Raceway where Denny Hamlin and Ross Chastain clashed once again. In the battle for the win, Hamlin ran Chastain up the track and into the wall. 

Hamlin went on to win, beating teammate Kyle Busch. However, it was all for naught as both Joe Gibbs Racing cars were disqualified after failing post-race inspection. Chase Elliott inherited the race victory, further extending his championship lead.

Ryan Blaney and Martin Truex Jr. remain safe, for now, as the only drivers currently in the playoffs without a win. A 15th different winner in the coming weeks would boot one of them out of the top-16, despite sitting inside the top-five in regular season points. Kevin Harvick is the most likely candidate to usurp Truex or Blaney, and was set for a great result at Pocono before getting collected in the Hamlin/Chastain scuffle. 

Ty Gibbs finished 16th in his Cup Series debut at Pocono, subbing for Kurt Busch. The NASCAR medical team has yet to clear the veteran driver, who is experiencing concussion-like symptoms after a crash in Pocono qualifying. Gibbs will once again pilot the No. 45 machine this weekend.
