Despite speculation NBC might take over the second half of the season next year, one season earlier than planned when the network signed a ten year deal to begin in 2015, NASCAR distributed a statement confirming the status quo would remain intact.
“Despite speculation over the last month that NASCAR’s new television agreement could be pushed up to the start of the 2014 season, NASCAR has informed our broadcast partners today that FOX, Turner and ESPN will finish the current term as originally planned,” said Steve Herbst, NASCAR Vice President of Broadcasting and Production. “While we were humbled by the desire of NBC and FOX to start 12 months early, we now consider this matter closed and look forward to finishing our current agreement in 2014 with our great partners at FOX, Turner and ESPN.”
