Geico 500 Live Stream: How to Watch Online Without Cable

Getty Penske teammates Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano have combined for eight wins at Talladega.

The 2019 Geico 500 will take place at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday.

The race is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. ET and will be televised nationally on Fox. But if you don’t have cable, you can watch a live stream of Fox on your computer, phone, Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV or other streaming device via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming subscription services:

FuboTV

Fox (live in most markets) is one of 85-plus live TV channels included in the main FuboTV bundle, which is largely tailored towards sports.

You can start a free 7-day trial of FuboTV right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the race on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast or other supported device via the FuboTV app.

If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as a 72-hour look-back feature, which allows you to watch the race (and other programs) on-demand within three days of its conclusion, even if you don’t record it.

PlayStation Vue

PS Vue–which doesn’t require an actual PlayStation console to sign up or watch–offers four different live-TV channel packages, all of which include Fox (live in most markets).

You can start a free 5-day trial of PS Vue right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the race on your computer via the PS Vue website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, PlayStation (3 or 4), or other supported device via the PS Vue app.

If you can’t watch live, PS Vue comes with cloud DVR.

Hulu With Live TV

In addition to a Netflix-like on-demand streaming library, Hulu also offers a bundle of 60-plus live TV channels, including Fox (live in most markets).

You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the race on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Echo Show, or other streaming device via the Hulu app.

If you can’t watch live, Hulu With Live TV comes with 50 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as the option to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of space and the ability to fast-forward through commercials.


Geico 500 Preview

Austin Dillon, the 2018 Daytona 500 winner, claimed pole position on Saturday, his 29th birthday.

“This is a great starting position,” Dillon said, according to Motorsport.com. “Starting position is one thing but finishing the race tomorrow is the big thing. We’ve got to go out there and gain as many points as we can.

“The great thing is we have a fast car. So, we just need to keep this momentum building.”

Dillon posted an average lap speed of 192.544 mph in the final round of qualifying, edging Aric Almirola, who posted a time of 192.131 mph. Almirola won at Talladega in the 1000Bulbs.com 500 in October.

“I took a different approach (in the final round) getting up to speed and I think it helped it jump up there a little bit more to get (Almirola),” Dillon said, per Motorsport.com. “I hope that’s what it was.”

“I think the race is going to be wild. You can get such big runs on the guy in front of you. You better hope that the guy behind you getting that run makes a good move and doesn’t take you out of the race.”

The Geico 500 will mark the first race with NASCAR’s new rules at Talladega and Daytona. Horsepower-reducing restrictor plates have been replaced with tapered spacers, and cars’ rear spoilers have been raised.

“I mean, Talladega is the unpredictable,” Brad Keselowksi said, according to the Associated Press. “It’s a lot of what defines it, a lot of the allure of it. It’s always been a bit of a mysterious track. The odds here are higher than anywhere else. It’s hard to quantify, and I would say with everything that continues to change and how dynamic it is with the rules and the cars and the drivers, there’s very much an opportunity for that again.”

Keselowski has won at Talladega five times. His Penske teammate Joey Logano has won there three times, including at the 2018 Geico 500.

Logano took second in his last race, failing to pass Martin Truex Jr. in the final laps of a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event at Richmond Raceway on April 14.

“We had a car that was capable of winning for the third week straight and we didn’t win. That part is frustrating,” Logano said, according to Speed Sport. “We need to clean up some mistakes on our end. We lost the lead there on a pit stop. We gotta get faster there. That is when we lost control of the race at that point and fell back to third. We had a decent green-flag cycle that got us up again … and then we reeled in the 19 (Truex) and the 14 (Clint Bowyer) from pretty far back.”
