For anyone who’s asking “What time is the NASCAR race today,” the answer is that it’s a few minutes later than usual.

The Goodyear 400 at Darlington Raceway is still scheduled to roll off mid-afternoon, however, in NASCAR’s preferred time window for Cup Series races this season.  

Darlington will be the 12th race this year and the 11th scheduled for the daytime. Just six points races and the All-Star Race are scheduled to be run at night the remainder of the season. Darlington has lights, so the start time isn’t a factor in whether the race can be completed. 

Below is all you need to know about the schedule for the Goodyear 400 at Darlington on Mother’s Day.
