NASCAR schedule 2022: Date, time, TV channels for every Cup Series race

The green flag is waving, as it’s time for another NASCAR season.

The NASCAR Cup Series began its 74th season on Feb. 20 with the Daytona 500. Many of the venues and race names will be familiar to NASCAR fans. However, one thing that they will notice about this year’s schedule is that races will start a bit later than fans have become accustomed to in recent years. This is part of NASCAR’s broader goal of maximizing audience, as explained by NASCAR Senior Vice President of Media and Productions Brian Herbst.

“Based on data and fan feedback from the past several years, shifting afternoon start times back allows more of our fans — whether at home or at the track — to take in NASCAR racing on Sundays,” Herbst said in a press release. “In addition, airing the most Cup Series races on broadcast in more than a decade is consistent with our strategy of distributing our content to as many fans as possible during key moments in the season.”

Below is the complete NASCAR Cup Series schedule for 2022, including start times and TV channels for each race.
