One of the unique aspects of the NASCAR playoffs is that, even as the field of playoff drivers is winnowed down, the races are still held with a full starting field. This means those who managed to wrangle playoff spots are still competing against non-playoff racers.

How to Watch the NASCAR Playoffs on TV

NBC and its sister-station USA air all the postseason Cup and Xfinity Series races, while Fox broadcasts the Truck Series on Fox Sports 1 (FS1). The good news for you is that USA and FS1 are both included in Sling Blue, and Sling Blue also adds NBC in many media markets.

If you happen to live in one of the areas where Sling doesn’t provide NBC, you can always take advantage of their free antenna offer, which will give you access to any local station in your area.
