NASCAR has pared its broadcasts down to two providers - Fox and NBC. According to a report from USA Today, the recently inked deal will give the Peacock Network exclusive rights to the last 20 Sprint Cup races, the last 19 Nationwide races, all K&N and Whelen Modified races, the NASCAR Toyota Mexico series, Hall of Fame and banquet ceremonies, live-streams for both Sprint Cup and Nationwide races, and Spanish broadcasting rights on Telemundo and Mun2. Got all that?

The deal is in effect until 2024, but won't officially kick off until the 2015 season, when NBC and Fox will begin sharing in earnest. The two networks are likely to air some of the races on the NBC Sports network and Fox Sports 1 (which replaces Speed TV), respectively.

Financial details have not been revealed for the NBC deal yet. Fox and NASCAR's tie-up, which was renewed last fall, was valued at $2.4 billion, and gets the News Corp-owned network broadcast rights for the Daytona 500, 12 Sprint Cup races, practicing and qualifying, and the Camping World Truck Series.

The network shift will see ABC/ESPN and Turner Broadcasting end their NASCAR programming with the 2014 season.

      NBC made the big move with F1 coverage, and now splitting NASCAR with Fox, again i have to wonder what the new United Sportscar Racing group will lean towards, stick with Fox and their new rebranded channel or head to new waters with NBC, I doubt the ESPN connection from ALMS will bleed over one thing i would really like, is a major racing news show on either of those networks to cover all the major racing news from NASCAR, United Sportscar Racing, F1, Indy, hell even throw WEC news in since it would tie into Le Mans actually since i brought it up what are the chances one of the networks will ever provide WEC coverage? i know we get it streaming which is probably the future anyways, but since P1 is out in USR, WEC will be the only place to see Audi vs Toyota vs Porsche next year there has to be some interest even if it's from some diehards

      t needs to establish an identity for NBC Sports Network and status as a destination channel Airing NASCAR Sprint Cup races is another step in that direction

          Hill climbs,drag racing. It seems like the person that's always calling people a moron, is actually the moron.

      Yeah I'd like to call and report a suspicious NASCAR driver lurking around the pits, he looks black.

      Anythings better than the Waltrip clowns. Now maybe we'll see more racing than commercials.

      Great. Maybe NBCSN can make NASCAR even more unwatchable (than it is now) by doing what it did on this years Tour de France (3 minute commercial break every 5 to 6 minutes). Good luck.

        Do people still watch the PED circuit. I figured everyone on the tour got busted for drugs. It's too bad Lance ruined that spire for awhile.
