The second half of the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup season gets underway on Sunday with the 5-hour ENERGY 301 from New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Kyle Busch is healthy and back on the track, and he's won two of the last three races. He won the 5-hour ENERGY 301 back in 2006, while brother Kurt Busch took the checkered flag in New Hampshire in both 2004 and 2008.

NBCSN begins coverage of the race with a 30-minute Countdown to Green pre-race show, hosted by Krista Voda alongside analysts Kyle Petty and Frank Stoddard, plus input from Steve Letarte as well.

"The race to the Chase is in full effect as we visit the only Chase track left on the 2015 schedule before the start of the playoffs," said Letarte earlier this week in a press release. "It will be very interesting to see which drivers earn the remaining spots, and I’m curious to see how those teams who are already in the Chase use this trip to the Magic Mile to prepare for the next visit in late September when the stakes are even higher."

The race coverage begins at 1:30 p.m. with Rick Allen, Jeff Burton and Letarte on the call, plus pit reporters Dave Burns, Mike Massaro and Marty Snider.

The race can be followed online and via mobile devices through NBC Sports Live Extra. The race will re-air on NBCSN on Monday at 3 p.m.
