NASCAR At Indianapolis 2012: Brickyard 400 TV Schedule, Starting Lineup & More

Jeff Gordon really has his back up against the wall now. He needs at least two wins before the cutoff to even entertain the notion of winning the Sprint Cup. And he needs one of those wins immediately. He will be No. 9 in the starting lineup at the Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis on Sunday and will be hoping for nothing less than the checkered flag.

AJ Allmendinger, meanwhile, failed his "B" test after an appeal for his substance abuse suspension and will now be suspended indefinitely by NASCAR. For the time being, Jeff Gordon is the only Bay Area driver in this year's Sprint Cup Series.

The green flag is scheduled to wave at 10:19 a.m. PT. This will be the first race of the season broadcast on ESPN, who will handle the television broadcasts for the remainder of the year. It will be a welcome change after six awful weeks of TNT coverage.

There IS live streaming of the race today, which can be found via the "Watch ESPN" app. If you'll be away from your computer and TV, check the Performance Racing Network's web site for a list of affiliate radio stations in your area.
