NASCAR At New Hampshire 2012: Loudon Start Time, Starting Lineup, Live Streaming, TV/Radio Schedule And More

It's NASCAR race day at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and we've got the actual race start time, the starting lineup and some other facts about today's race for you below.

What time does the race start today? A sponsor exec will give the command to fire engines today at 1:08 p.m. Eastern time, followed by a few pace laps and the waving of the green flag at 1:16 p.m. So if you're looking to skip the pre-race show and just tune in for the race itself, turn on your TV set at 1:16 p.m. EDT.

Race name/distance: The Lenox Industrial Tools 301 is a 301-lap race around the New Hampshire Motor Speedway – nicknamed the "Magic Mile" for a total of ... 318.46 miles? Wait, what? Yes, as it turns out, New Hampshire is more than a mile: It's 1.058 miles. We're guessing the "Lenox Industrial Tools 318.46" doesn't sound as good though.

TV, radio and live streaming: The race can be seen on TNT. This is TNT's final race of six broadcasts this summer before handing the reins to ESPN for the rest of the season beginning at Indianapolis (there's an off week next weekend). There IS live streaming of the race today, which can be found at's "RaceBuddy" site. If you'll be away from your computer and TV, check the Performance Racing Network's web site for a list of affiliate radio stations in your area.

*** NOTE: If you're out and about and can't watch the race, make sure to follow me (@jeff_gluck) on Twitter. I'll be tweeting updates about the event. ***

National anthem: Emma Joanis, a 12-year-old winner of the track's "Speedway Star" competition, is doing the honors today. Let's hope she does a good job, since we'd hate to see a kid ridiculed on Twitter (the typical response to a bad anthem).

Tickets: New Hampshire usually has a strong crowd, but the race hasn't been announced as a sellout. If you're looking to make a last-minute trip, tickets should be no problem.

Weather: Uh oh. The unofficial NASCAR weatherman, Brian Neudorff, says today's forecast is iffy and could feature rain showers that might delay the proceedings. Make sure to check our StoryStream for updates as the race gets closer.

Last time: The 2011 season at New Hampshire was all about Stewart-Haas Racing. SHR had a season sweep, with Ryan Newman winning the spring race and Tony Stewart continuing his championship run with a win in the fall.
