NASCAR 2021: How to watch the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 today without cable

You don't need cable TV to watch the racin' and rubbin' Saturday night on FS1.

NASCAR heads to Martinsville, Virginia this weekend to race under the lights on the shortest track on the Cup Series tour. The Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 starts Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET (12:30 p.m. PT) on Fox. 

Fresh off his win two weeks ago, Joey Logano nabbed the pole position for Saturday night's race, where he'll start next to Denny Hamlin. William Byron, Ryan Blaney and Chase Elliott round out the top five starting positions for the 37-car field.

Here's how you can watch the race at the Martinsville Speedway -- aka The Paperclip -- without cable.

How to watch NASCAR without cable

NASCAR races are broadcast on either Fox or FS1. The Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 will be shown on FS1. If you don't have a cable or satellite TV subscription, you can watch the race with a live-TV service. The good news for race fans is that Fox and FS1 are available on each streaming service. The catch is that not every service carries every local network, so check each one using the links below to make sure it carries Fox in your area.

If you live in an area with good reception, you can watch races broadcast on Fox for free on over-the-air broadcast channels just by attaching an affordable (under $30) indoor antenna to nearly any TV.

Sling's $35-a-month Blue package offers Fox and FS1 but carries Fox in only a handful of areas.
