I think when they say EST, they mean EDT. They're talking about live coverage of the race itself beginning 1:30AM EST, but my TV listing shows it at 10:30PM PDT, which corresponds to 1:30AM EDT. From this, I would surmise they are going to televise tape-delayed coverage of Q2 and Q3 qualifying in the hour before the actual race at 9:30PM PDT (12:30 AM EDT).
