Team Penske teammates Will Power and Helio Castroneves lead a group of championship hopefuls this weekend aiming for the 2014 Verizon IndyCar Series title at the MAVTV 500 IndyCar World Championships, the final race of the 2014 season, on Saturday at 9 p.m. on NBCSN. NBC Sports Live Extra - NBC Sports Group's live streaming product for desktops, mobile devices, and tablets - will live stream Saturday's MAVTV 500 IndyCar World Championships.
NBC Sports Group's motorsports coverage this week also includes more than 10 hours of "Auctions America" action from its flagship Auburn auction, as well as encore presentations of "Mecum Dealmakers" and "DRIVE on NBC Sports."
NBCSN's coverage of the MAVTV 500 begins tonight at 7 p.m. with qualifying, followed by live race coverage on Saturday in primetime at 9 p.m. Power leads Castroneves by 51 points heading into the 2014 IndyCar season finale, followed by Simon Pagenaud (Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, 81 points behind). Both Power and Castroneves are looking to secure their first career IndyCar titles. Both drivers have finished second in the final standings on three separate occasions.
This weekend's race at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, is worth double points, meaning a potential 100-point swing in the standings, keeping Pageneaud's slim title hopes alive.
