NASCAR Coke 600 2012: TV Time, Starting Lineup & More

The 2012 Indianapolis 500 may be taking place on Sunday, but that isn't the only automobile race on a jam-packed day. Charlotte Motor Speedway will play host to the 2012 Coca-Cola 600, a marathon race that is the longest of the year in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Overall points leader Greg Biffle is still atop the leaderboard, but just two slim points separate him from No. 2 driver Matt Kenseth. Biffle will have a bit of an edge in the race, as he is No. 4 in the starting lineup, while Kenseth will be all the way down at No. 20 in the grid. Jimmie Johnson, currently at No. 5 on the leaderboard, will start just ahead of Biffle at No. 3 in the starting lineup and will be trying to rack up the points this week.

Sunday's race begins at approximately 3:19 p.m. PT and will be televised nationally on FOX. If you wanted to listen on the radio, you can listen on the Performance Racing Network's Web site. You can also check PRN's site for a list of affiliate stations in your area.
