Starting grid, TV schedule for Sunday’s race

The NASCAR Cup Series is back at Nashville Super Speedway for their second ever race on the 1,333-mile oval.

Defending champion Kyle Larson was dominant in 2021, but that hasn’t translated to the Next Gen car (although he does have a win in 2022).

With 10 regular season flights to go, 12 drivers have won this year† There are 16 play-off spots available. Kevin Harvick, who has the 6th best average finish in 2022, is currently looking from the outside in.

Here’s what you need to know about Sunday’s race:
