NASCAR Las Vegas race March 2024: Start time, TV, streaming, lineup for Pennzoil 400

NASCAR heads west for a two-race swing.

Las Vegas Motor Speedway hosts the series this weekend before racing moves to Phoenix Raceway the following week. Each track will also hold a playoff race later in the year, with Las Vegas serving as the first race of the third round and Phoenix once again the site of the championship race.

Following an exciting race and a “Can you believe that finish!” at Atlanta Motor Speedway last weekend, the NASCAR Cup Series seeks to keep that momentum going in Sin City. So does Chevrolet, whose drivers won the first two races this season (William Byron at the Daytona 500 and Daniel Suarez at Atlanta).

The manufacturer will again be the odds-on favorite to put a driver in victory lane on Sunday. Chevy’s biggest team, Hendrick Motorsports, swept the top three positions at Las Vegas last March with Byron atop the podium followed Kyle Larson and Alex Bowman.

Here is all the information you need to get ready for the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

Kyle Larson (5) crosses the finish line ahead of Christopher Bell (20) to win the South Point 400 NASCAR Cup Series playoff race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Oct 15, 2023.
