NASCAR is in New England for its annual fall race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The Bad Boy Off Road 300 is the second race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup, and a victory Sunday by a playoff-eligible driver would guarantee them automatic advancement to Round 2.

Start time: The command for drivers to fire their engines will be given shortly after 2 p.m. ET, and the waving of the green will commence at 2:15 p.m. ET.

Distance: The scheduled distance calls for drivers to complete 300 laps (317.4 miles) around the 1.058-mile track

National anthem: U.S. Marine Corps veteran and retired Massachusetts State Trooper Daniel M. Clark will sing the national anthem.

TV/Radio/Stream coverage: NBCSN will broadcast the race with its coverage beginning at 1:00 p.m. ET. The network will also provide a stream at NBCSports.com. Performance Racing Network will handle the radio broadcast, with SiriusXM NASCAR simulcasting PRN's coverage.

Defending race winner: Matt Kenseth capitalized on leader Kevin Harvick running out of fuel with three laps remaining to score the victory. In July, Kenseth also won the most recent New Hampshire race, capping a dominant afternoon for Toyota, which saw its five main drivers combine to lead 299 of 301 laps.
