The NASCAR Cup Series is back in action this week with a special double-header event at the Pocono Raceway. This weekend’s first Cup Series race, the Pocono Organics CBD 325, starts on Saturday, June 26 at 3 p.m. ET and will air on NBC Sports. You can watch a live stream here on the NBC Sports site or via the NBC Sports App.

The race is 130 laps and equal to 325 miles. Last year, Kevin Harvick won the race with a time of 2:25:01. Prior to that, the race ran 400 miles across 160 laps and was regularly closer to three hours in length.

Kyle Larson is the favorite to win Saturday’s race in the Poconos, installed at +225 by DraftKings Sportsbook. He’s won four of the last five Cup Series races and is a heavy favorite, with Denny Hamlin at +750 the next closest on the odds list. Larson also holds the pole for Saturday’s race.
