NASCAR Coke 600 2012: TV Time, Starting Lineup & More

The 2012 Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway is taking place on Sunday ... the same day that a much more famous race, the Indianapolis 500, is being run. NASCAR will be hoping to prove to racing fans that the longest race of the year in the 2012 Sprint Cup Series will be every bit as thrilling and vital as the Indy 500.

Kevin Harvick has been sliding down the Sprint Cup leaderboard in recent weeks and is currently sitting at No. 8. Things could be much worse, but Harvick would certainly prefer to be in the Top 5 at this point. Harvick will be sitting at No. 14 in the starting lineup on Sunday, but there will certainly be no shortage of time and laps to allow him to move up and gain some significant points.

Sunday's race begins at approximately 3:19 p.m. PT and will be televised nationally on FOX. If you wanted to listen on the radio, you can listen on the Performance Racing Network's Web site. You can also check PRN's site for a list of affiliate stations in your area.
