First 14 races will be on Fox/FS1, with only 5 Cup Races airing on your local broadcast FOX Station The last 14 races will run on NBC or USA with just 4 Cup Races on the local broadcast NBC Station What about the middle 10 races? NASCAR welcomes Amazon Prime and new again to NASCAR TNT, which previously had a 32 year relationship. So 5 races after the Fox portion of the season goes to Amazon And 5 races after Amazon goes to TNT Hope you are taking notes for all this How about Practice and Qualifying? Amazon Prime will handle all of that until their race coverage ends and hands it off to TNT when they will handle practices and qualifying. The exception to this is The Busch Light Clash, Daytona 500 and All-Star Race, whose practice and qualifying will remain with FOX Sports. Don’t forget the Xfinity Series was already announced to air on the CW Network exclusively during the same timeframe. What about the Craftsman Truck Series? Live events for the entire 23-race NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season will air on FS1 through 2031.
