Important TV Info for Fans Regarding Saturday’s Nationwide Race




Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway airs on ABC, with NASCAR Countdown at 2:30 p.m. ET and the race at 3 p.m.
Due to regional college basketball and other local conflicts, some ABC affiliates have arranged alternate viewing choices in their service areas, in most cases on digital-tier (DT) stations. The pre-race program will not air in two markets, and the stations in those markets will join the race in progress, but no markets will totally shut out the race telecast. NASCAR fans should contact their local ABC affiliates with any questions.

Looks like there may be a lot of "channel surfing" going on this Saturday in some locations, trying to find the race. I'll have to remember that. Thanks, peanut.
