NASCAR Dover 2013: Start time, TV schedule for AAA 400

Patrick Smith

Dover International Speedway will host the third leg of the Chase on Sunday. Will Matt Kenseth win again?

Matt Kenseth is on top of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Standings two races into the Chase and he'll get a chance to increase his lead Sunday at Dover International Speedway for the AAA 400.

Kenseth won the first two races of the Chase and currently has a 14-point lead over Kyle Busch. The lead would be larger, but Busch finished second to Kenseth in both races. If Busch is going to stay on Kenseth's heels, he'll have some early ground to make up. Kenseth will start in the No. 2 position, behind Dale Earnhardt Jr. Busch didn't fare as well in qualifying and will start from the No. 14 spot.

Pre-race television coverage will begin at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN with green flag scheduled for 2:15 p.m. ESPN's live race coverage will begin at 2 p.m. with Allen Bestwick, Dale Jarrett and Andy Petree in the booth. ESPN's pre-race show and live broadcast can also be watched online at ESPN3.

Motor Racing Network on SiriusXM will provide radio coverage with the broadcast scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. The radio broadcast can also be streamed online.

Race schedule:

Green flag: 2:15 p.m
