NASCAR At Richmond Start Time, Lineup, TV/Radio Info

NASCAR's Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Speedway in Richmond, Va., is scheduled to run Saturday night, but rain could delay or even postpone the event.

SB Nation motorsports editor Jeff Gluck, from his round-up on the nuts and bolts of the race:

Weather: The unofficial NASCAR weatherman, Brian Neudorff, says rain will almost certainly delay the race or even postpone it. Make sure to follow Neudorff on Twitter - he's @nascar_wxman - for more information.

If the race begins on time, pole winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. and the rest of the field will take the green flag just before 7:45 p.m. ET. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is tentatively scheduled to give the command for drivers to start their engines. Again, if the race is running on schedule, that is scheduled to happen at 7:38 p.m.

Earnhardt Jr. won the pole in Friday's qualifying, his 11th career pole position and first since the 2011 Daytona 500.

TV: ABC, coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET
