Here are your IndyCar TV times on NBCSN for this weekend’s MAVTV 500


The Verizon IndyCar Series returns to action this week after a one-week hiatus, with the MAVTV 500 moving slots to a new date in June, after previous years in September, October and August, respectively.

NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra will have coverage. Further details are below:


American Josef Newgarden (CFH Racing) looks to build on his win two weeks ago at the Honda Indy Toronto, where he earned his second victory of the 2015 season and led CFH Racing to a 1-2 result, as teammate Luca Filippi earned a second-place finish.

Juan Pablo Montoya (Team Penske) continues to lead the drivers’ standings with 374 points, followed by teammate Will Power (347) points, who boasts five poles in nine races. Montoya has won four of his nine career 500-mile races in IndyCar, including this year’s Indianapolis 500. Last year, Tony Kanaan (Chip Ganassi Racing) took the checkered flag at the MAVTV 500, which served as the IndyCar season finale.

This weekend’s NBCSN IndyCar coverage begins on Friday at midnight ET with qualifying. NBCSN’s presentation continues on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET with live race coverage.

NBC Sports Group’s lead IndyCar play-by-play voice Leigh Diffey will call the MAVTV 500, alongside analyst and former race mechanic for the Benetton F1 team Steve Matchett, and analyst and former driver Paul Tracy. Robin Miller, Jon Beekhuis, Kevin Lee and Kelli Stavast will handle pit reporting duties.
