ESPN show interest in Record-Breaking Broadcasting Deal with NASCAR

For a significant amount of time now, the NASCAR race weekend coverage has been handled by Fox Sports and NBCSN.

With NBCSN departing the scene December last year, ESPN could back jump into the fray. Ahead of the 2022 season, there were reports of a TV deal, and some hint that it could be a big one.

According to ESPN executive Burke Magnus, “NASCAR was an enormous property for us back then [when the network aired lots of racing], and may be some day again“. Back in 2013, NBCSN inked a record ten-year deal for $4.4 billion. Now, some suggest that the newest deal could even surpass that.

Reliable sources are confident that it will be worth more than the current $4.4 billion deal. If this deal does go through, it will be massive for NASCAR and for the fans. Already, ESPN is home to a large variety of sports, and NASCAR will definitely add a new flavor.

  1. I’m loving this plan with ESPN. I am on DISH network and lost the local NBC affiliate midway through last year, thus I lost the last half of the NASCAR Season. I would love to see NASCAR move to ESPN. I can’t believe or local NBC channel 12 pulled the plug on NASCAR here in Phoenix AZ including the final race of the season here in Phoenix. GO ESPN!!!
