The Oct. 15 Xfinity race at Kansas Speedway will begin an hour earlier at 3 p.m. ET and will air on NBC.

The Nov. 12 Xfinity race at Phoenix International Raceway will move to a night race, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

“These updates were made with the goal of benefitting NASCAR fans, with Kansas now airing on NBC and Phoenix airing in primetime,” said Steve Herbst, senior vice president, broadcasting and production at NASCAR, in a statement. “Our ability to adjust the start times for these two critically important races in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Chase is a testament to the collaboration between NASCAR, our broadcast partners, teams and tracks to deliver the best product possible to our fans.”
