Television coverage[edit | edit source]
During the first five seasons, races were televised live on Time Warner Cable SportsNet. Due to no one having that channel except for the west coast, all races were tape delayed and showed on FuelTV/Fox Sports 2. In season 6, the first couple of races were televised live on FOX Networks, then Richmond/South Boston were televised on ABC. The rest of season 6 was televised on TNT. In season 7, TWCSN returned as the broadcaster for all races, and Fox Sports 2 did simulcasts of the events. Starting in late season 7, NBC Sports Group bought the television rights for season 8 onwards.
- While season 9 was underway, it was announced that NBC Sports will lose the primary rights after season 10. It was shortly announced afterwards that coverage of season 11 will be done in house, and will be a co-production between NBC Sports and DASCAR International Productions.
