What’s Happening?

NBC Sports has officially announced all of the details surrounding their 2024 NASCAR coverage, including which races will be available on Peacock. Here is everything you need to know.

  • NASCAR races on Peacock are not exclusively broadcast on Peacock. However, Peacock retains the exclusive streaming rights for these races, meaning fans can only stream them through a Peacock subscription, NOT on the NBC Sports App.
  • NBC announced its 2024 broadcast schedule alongside the 2024 NASCAR schedule release. This features the typical 10 races on network TV and 10 races on USA, but details on Peacock would come in the future.
  • NASCAR fans, particularly those who travel, want to know which races will be streamed on Peacock. Since a cable subscription won’t allow them to stream on the go, Peacock is necessary.

CONFIRMED Dates

NBC Sports announced on June 11th that three Cup Series races and one Xfinity Series race will be on Peacock in 2024.

  • July 6th: Xfinity Series Chicago Street Race
  • July 7th: Cup Series Chicago Street Race
  • August 24th: Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona
  • November 10th: Season Finale at Phoenix

Changes to 2024 Peacock Coverage

As we mentioned earlier, Peacock coverage is as simple as simulcasting the NBC broadcast onto streaming, so, any changed to NBC are also made to Peacock. The first high-profile change is Dale Earnhardt Jr. leaving NBC for Amazon and Warner Bros. Discovery (TNT). He will be out of the NBC/Peacock booth for 2024.

In the wake of this announcement, Adam Stern of Sports Business Journal reported that Leigh Diffey would take over as the lead commentator for Cup Series races on NBC/Peacock sometime after the Olympic break. Specifics were not given on which races he would broadcast.

We also know that Peacock will be taking over the exclusive streaming rights of all 14 NBC races in the next NASCAR media rights deal. Once again, they will simulcast the NBC Sports TV broadcasts.
