The NASCAR Cup Series is back in action on Sunday, July 19th with the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The race starts at 3:00 p.m. ET and will air on NBC Sports. You can watch a live stream on NBC Sports Live.

The race is 301 laps totaling 318.458 miles if there is no overtime. Three of the past four years, the race has gone at least three hours. Last year the race ran 3:10:22, which was the longest time in a non-overtime race since 2004.

Two-time winner Denny Hamlin is the race favorite, installed by DraftKings Sportsbook at +475 to win. He’s followed by Martin Truex, Jr. at +500 and Kyle Larson at +550. Defending champ and two-time winner Brad Keslowski follows at +650 alongside Kyle Busch. Busch holds the pole position for this race with Truex joining him in the front row.

Hamlin is the current points leader, sitting ten points up on Larson. However, Larson leads in the projected playoff field. After Sunday’s New Hampshire race, the Cup Series runs four August races and then starts its playoffs.
