For anyone who asks “What time is NASCAR racing today”, the answer is, it is usual time.
The Buschy McBusch Race 400 at Kansas Speedway is scheduled to take place on Sunday afternoon, in NASCAR’s preferred time window for Cup Series races this season.
Kansas will be the 11th race this year and the 10th scheduled for the day. Only six points races and the All-Star Race are expected to take place at night the rest of the season. Kansas has lights, so the start time is not a factor in whether the race can be completed.
Below, you’ll find everything you need to know about the schedule for Sunday’s Buschy McBusch 400 race in Kansas.
