NASCAR Playoffs at Texas: How to Watch Today's Race Without Cable

NASCAR's playoffs continue Sunday with the Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 500. You don't need cable TV to enjoy all the racin' and rubbin' on USA Network.

And then there were 12. Four drivers were cut from NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs last weekend, leaving 12 left in chase for the title. After three races in the Round of 12 at Texas, Talladega and Charlotte, the playoff field will again be trimmed by four for three Round of 8 races at Las Vegas, Miami and Martinsville. Four drivers will advance to compete for the title at the Phoenix Raceway on Nov. 6. 

The playoffs continue on Sunday with the first Round of 12 race at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas, with the Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 500. The race starts Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET (12:30 p.m. PT) and will be broadcast on USA Network. Here's how you can watch the race without cable.

How to watch NASCAR without cable

The NASCAR playoffs will be broadcast on NBC and USA Network. 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 NBC and USA Network 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 NBC in your area.

If you live in an area with good reception, you can watch races broadcast on NBC 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 USA Network but carries NBC in only a handful of areas.
