The NASCAR Cup Series is back in action on Sunday, October 2 with the 2022 YellaWood 500 at the Talladega Superspeedway. The race starts at 2 p.m. ET and will air on NBC. You can watch a live stream on the NBC live stream. The race is 188 laps and usually lasts between three and three and a half hours.
