NASCAR At Watkins Glen 2012: Starting Lineup, TV Schedule & More

As the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rolls into Watkins Glen on Sunday, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is the current points leader. He has a slim five-point edge over Matt Kenseth and a six-point lead over third-place Greg Biffle. He'll be looking to gain some ground and pick up a big win on Sunday, if possible. Kasey Kahne and Jeff Gordon are currently the leaders for the Wild Card positions, but they'll have a whole field gunning for them as there are only five races left before the Sprint Cup cutoff.

There IS live streaming of the race today, which can be found at's "RaceBuddy" site and on the "Watch ESPN" app. If you'll be away from your computer and TV, check the Motor Racing Network's web site for a list of affiliate radio stations in your area.
