The NASCAR Cup Series is back in action on Sunday, October 31 with the Xfinity 500 at Martinsville Speedway. The race starts at 2 p.m. ET and will air on NBC. You can watch a live stream at NBC Sports Live.

This is also the track where the Cup Series runs the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 in the spring. Truex has won it the past two years with times of 3:54:25 and 3:23:56.
