What’s Happening?

Dale Earhardt Jr’.’s move from NBC to streaming is now official, as both Amazon and Warner Bros Discovery (TNT) announced he will be joining for NASCAR broadcasts in 2025. Andrew Marchand of The Athletic originally reported in February that Dale Earnhardt Jr. is jumping ship from NBC to join Amazon and Warner Bros. Discovery (TNT) for the duo’s NASCAR coverage starting in 2025. Earnhardt Jr. disclosed that his contract with NBC was up on his podcast, “The Dale Jr. Download” back in early February. Since then, he has dropped some small hints about what he is looking for with his next broadcast partner.

  • Dale Earnhardt Jr. joined NBC in 2018 after retiring from driving. Since then, he has become one of the most well-liked and respected broadcasters in all of NASCAR, and he has grown a podcast empire with his company, Dirty Mo Media. It’s unclear as of now how exactly Dirty Mo Media will fit in.
  • Amazon and Warner Bros. Discovery are both joining the NASCAR media rights deal in 2025. After Fox broadcasts the first 14 races, Amazon and Warner Bros. Discovery will split 10 races in the summer, with Amazon taking the first 5 and Warner Bros. Discovery taking the last five. Amazon’s races will be streamed on Amazon Prime, and Warner Bros. Discovery will broadcast their races on TNT. The pairing will also split practice and qualifying coverage with Amazon Prime doing 16 of the first 19 events (exclusions are the Clash the Daytona 500, and the All-Star Race)and Warner Bros. Discovery taking the final 19.
  • Earnhardt Jr. has been dropping hints about his broadcasting future throughout February. Most notably, on the Dale Jr. Download on February 27th, he explained that he would not take a job where he would broadcast remotely and that he wants to be able to react to things not on the screen. Amazon and Warner Bros. Discovery seem okay with these stipulations.
