NASCAR Playoffs 2021: How to watch the Bank of America ROVAL 400 today without cable

You don't need cable TV to watch the racin' and rubbin' at Charlotte on Sunday for the last Round of 12 race on NBC.

After five races in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs, four drivers have been eliminated, leaving us with a field of 12. There is one Round of 12 race left before four more drivers are knocked out to narrow the field again for the Round of 8 races in Texas, Kansas and Martinsville, Virginia. Four drivers will compete for the title at the Phoenix Raceway in Avondale, Arizona, on Nov. 7.

Denny Hamlin won two weeks ago and sits at the top of the playoff standings with a spot guaranteed in the Round of 8. The last Round of 12 playoff race takes place at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina on Sunday. The Bank of America ROVAL 400 starts Sunday at 11 a.m. PT (2 p.m. ET) and will be broadcast on NBC. Here's how you can watch the race without cable.

How to watch the NASCAR Playoffs without cable

NASCAR races are broadcast on either Fox, FS1, NBC or NBCSN. Sunday's race will be shown on NBC. 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, FS1, NBC and NBCSN 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 and NBC in your area.

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