PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

It's one of the most popular races in NASCAR – The Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race – and you can see it Saturday at 4 p.m. on 3TV.

"That night race [is] the toughest race – ever – on the circuit," according to Darrell Waltrip, a three-time Winston Cup Series champion who is now a motorsports analyst. He also holds the track recording at Bristol Motor Speedway, a NASCAR short track venue in Bristol, TN.

With a capacity of 162,000, Bristol is the fourth largest sports venue in the country and you can bet it will be packed Saturday night.

You can take in all the NASCAR action -- and there will be lots of it --  in the comfort of your own home thanks to 3TV. NBC normally carries NASCAR but the local affiliate had a conflict with the Cardinals preseason game against the Chicago Bears
