What’s Happening?

NASCAR has officially announced that the NASCAR Xfinity Series will move to The CW a season early. The CW will exclusively broadcast the final 8 races of the NASCAR Xfinity Series season, starting with the regular season finale at Bristol on September 20th, going through the entire Playoffs, and finishing off with the Championship Race at Phoenix on November 9th. NBC will still produce the broadcasts, with Rick Allen, Steve Letarte, and Jeff Burton commentating, but they will be televised on The CW.

We have incredible media partners who collaborate at an exceptional level to showcase the excitement of live NASCAR racing,. We’re looking forward to having The CW get a head start as the home of the NASCAR Xfinity Series with the help of NBC Sports and continuing to deliver our fans thrilling on-track action
