Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks
NASCAR announced its networks and air times for all races of its three national series for the duration of the 2022 schedule on Nov. 2.
One of the biggest changes to the network schedule is the increase of network broadcasts throughout next year’s NASCAR Cup Series schedule, which features a growth from 17 network broadcasts to 19 — the most the series has seen since 2009. The rest of the season is being broadcasted on FOX and NBC cable affiliate stations FOX Sports 1 and USA.
“Working with the broadcast partners, tracks, teams and industry stakeholders, we will be able to deliver the best racing in the world to an even broader audience in 2022,” NASCAR svp of media and productions Brian Herbs said in a release. “Based on data and fan feedback from the past several years, shifting afternoon start times back allows more of our fans – whether at home or at the track – to take in NASCAR racing on Sundays. In addition, airing the most Cup Series races on broadcast in more than a decade is consistent with our strategy of distributing our content to as many fans as possible during key moments in the season.”
The 10 races featured on FOX’s broadcasts include crown-jewel races such as the Daytona 500 and the Coca-Cola 600, while also including newer venues such as the Bristol Motor Speedway dirt track and the series’ second visit to Circuit of the Americas.
The remaining nine network broadcasts will be live on NBC for Nashville Superspeedway, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course and the regular-season finale at Daytona International Speedway. The final six races of the season will also be broadcast on NBC.
