2016 Race Tickets

NASCAR, in collaboration with broadcast partners FOX Sports, NBC Sports Group, race teams and the 29 tracks committed to hosting races for the coming season, today announced race start times and network coverage for all three of its national series based on previously released schedule dates for 2016.

Entering the second season of 10-year comprehensive media rights agreements, races will be televised by FOX, FS1, NBC and NBCSN, with the exception of select events in August that will air on CNBC and USA due to NBC Sports’ coverage of the Summer Olympics. National series races also will be broadcast live by Motor Racing Network, Performance Racing Network, IMS Radio Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.

"NASCAR concluded 2015 with its most-watched championship finale in a decade, a benchmark that serves as a testament to deeper collaboration with our television and radio partners and increased engagement with fans," said Steve Herbst, senior vice president, broadcasting and production at NASCAR. "We look forward to carrying this momentum into 2016, starting with the DAYTONA 500 and Speedweeks, as the number of homes reached by our broadcast content continues to grow both domestically and internationally."
