It was actually closer to 5 pm ET/2 pm PT.  It was the second straight week that FOX had a hour-long pregame show instead of the expected half-hour.

This is an indication that FOX had make-good ads due to the declining ratings at the Daytona 500.

It's to the point if I see the "weekend schedule" on racingone.com listing the "start of race" at a certain time (i.e., 4:45 this week), I know to just add another 10-15 minutes to that for when they'll really actually start.  Just absurd...
