It’s been a strange weekend for the Verizon IndyCar Series at Texas Motor Speedway, but the Firestone 600 is due to launch shortly after 2 p.m. ET on CNBC.
It is still available at the same live stream link via NBC Sports Live Extra, at indystream.nbcsports.com for participating cable providers.
The race was postponed from last night owing to persistent rain and the 1.5-mile oval not fully drying.
Today’s race has since been rescheduled for 2 p.m. ET, with an estimated 2:06 p.m. ET green flag time (1:06 p.m. CT and local time).
While originally set to air on NBCSN, the race has shifted to CNBC owing to the Orlando shooting tragedy taking precedence on NBC network, which moves the Canadian Grand Prix (which runs concurrently) from NBC to NBCSN.
Carlos Munoz starts from his first career pole position in the No. 26 Andretti Autosport Honda, ahead of Scott Dixon, Helio Castroneves, Takuma Sato and Josef Newgarden. The grid is here.
Commentators include Brian Till, Townsend Bell and Paul Tracy, although Bell – like drivers Dixon, Mikhail Aleshin and Sebastien Bourdais – were due to go to France immediately after Texas for race commitments and scrutineering at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Till fills in for Leigh Diffey, who’s in Montreal for the Canadian Grand Prix.
