The NASCAR Cup Series is back in action on Sunday, February 28th with the Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The race starts at 3:30 p.m. ET and will air on FOX. You can watch a live stream on FOX.com/live. The race is 267 laps and usually lasts just at or under three hours. Over the past three years, the race has gone 3 hours and 8 minutes, 2 hours and 48 minutes, and 3 hours even.

In recent years, tradition had the South Florida track host the season finale for the Cup, Xfinity, and Truck Series. Last year, it got bumped up to mid-June where Denny Hamlin took home the checkered flag after claiming the pole position and leading the most laps. It marked his third career win at the Speedway.

Hamlin is the favorite to win at DraftKings Sportsbook, installed at +500. He’s followed by Kevin Harvick (+550), Chase Elliott (+650), Martin Truex Jr. (+700), and Kyle Larson (+850).
