The NASCAR Cup Series USA TODAY 301 will be presented this Sunday at 2:30 p.m. ET on USA Network, with Countdown to Green pre-race coverage beginning at 2 p.m. ET.

Following his win last weekend at the inaugural NASCAR Cup Series race at Iowa Speedway, Ryan Blaney (501 pts) moved into the top ten of the Cup Series Playoff points standings, with Chase Elliott (591 pts), Kyle Larson (583 pts), and Denny Hamlin (553 pts) making up the top three places. Martin Truex Jr. won the Loudon Lobster trophy at last year’s Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Last week’s inaugural NASCAR Cup Series race at Iowa Speedway on USA Network delivered a Total Audience Delivery of 2.72 million viewers, up 16% from the 2023 USA Network Sunday race average (2.35 million viewers) and up 5% from the first USA Network race of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season. The Iowa race is also up 3% from the first race of the 2021 season, which is the last time NBC Sports’ NASCAR coverage began on cable.

Coverage from Loudon begins Friday on USA Network with Xfinity Series practice and qualifying at 4 p.m. ET. A 30-minute Countdown to Green on USA Network at 3 p.m. ET on Saturday leads into Xfinity Series Sci Aps 200 race coverage at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Marty Snider, Kim Coon, and Parker Kligerman will serve as pit reporters.

Burton is a four-time winner at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (1997, 1998, 1999, 2000).
