NASCAR and its network broadcast partners Fox and NBC have announced their broadcast times for all Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series events in 2019.

The Las Vegas playoff race will now be televised starting at 7 p.m. ET to allow for a primetime network airing on the East Coast.

The schedule remains divided as in previous seasons with Fox handling all events starting with the events kicking off the season at Daytona International Speedway in February.

Fox and its sister network Fox Sports 1 will broadcast 16 regular season events as well as qualifying for the Daytona 500 and the Duel at Daytona and the special events held in May at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the All- Star Open and All-Star races.

NBC and its sister NBC Sports Network will pick up the schedule at Chicagoland in late June and carry the schedule through the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway in mid-November.

In addition to the television broadcast schedule, air times are also listed for the radio networks Motor Racing Network (MRN) and the Performance Racing Networks (PRN) broadcasted on over-the-air radio stations throughout North America and also on SIRIUS/XM satellite radio.

The lasting NASCAR legacy after Dale Earnhardt’s death

On February 18, 2001, seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Dale Earnhardt – the fearless ‘Intimidator’ – was in his element at Daytona International Speedway. While his own DEI team’s cars ran 1-2 towards the finish line, his famed #3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Monte Carlo was playing rear gunner to block any late runs from the chasing pack. As the cars tore through Turns 3 and 4 on that fateful final lap, Earnhardt maintained the strongarm tactics that encapsulated his persona… but his actions in those moments sadly proved to be his last.
