NASCAR at COTA 2023: Start time, TV, streaming, lineup for EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix

CORRECTIONS AND CLARIFICATIONS: An earlier version of this incorrectly stated Ross Chastain finished third in the final 2022 standings. He finished second.

NASCAR speeds into Austin, Texas, this weekend for its first road race of the season.

Sunday marks the third consecutive year that the Circuit of the Americas — also home to Formula One's United States Grand Prix — will host a Cup Series race on the 3.41-mile road course.

Last year's race concluded with a wild overtime finish and the first Cup win of Ross Chastain's career. That victory propelled Chastain to the playoffs, and he eventually finished second in the final 2022 standings.

Will Sunday's race kick-start Chastain again or will another driver make all the right moves at COTA? Here is all the information you need to get ready for the EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas:
