Agreed, but as far as the ESPN part, I hope Allen Bestwick goes back to NBC as the main guy.  I still prefer the Fox part of the season, but I've always thought Bestwick was one of the better lead guys in Nascar.

The deal actually doesn't start until 2015.

From the linked article:

Deal terms have NBC picking up the rights to the final 20 races of the Sprint Cup Series season, ... Seven of those races will be carried on the NBC broadcast channel; 13 will be available on NBC Sports Network.

NBC also picks up rights to the last 19 NASCAR Nationwide Series events – four of which will be on NBC and 15 on NBCSN.

Turner's other three races, as well as 14 Nationwide Series races, still are available;

Terms give NBC rights to NASCAR practice and qualifying sessions, the K&N Series, Whelen Modified Tour, Toyota (Mexico) Series, HOF induction ceremony and season-ending banquets. As part of the deal, NBC also picks up Spanish-language, VOD and TV Everywhere rights.


Wow. NBC has done good. Not only taking ESPN out of the equation but taking a major portion of Fox/FS1/Speed's additional content that they have been providing for years.

While there coverage may not have been as good as Fox, it was considerably better than what ESPN offers.  ESPN's personalities for NASCAR are dry and would be better suited for something like paint drying.   Watching today's Brickyard 400 was painful to say the least.

Would they also take over the qualifying races for Fox's portion of NASCAR?   The article seemed to leave this question in a gray area. I could understand that NBC woudl get the rights to the events they covered while Fox maintained their rights (since this is mroe or less how it currently works).

Yep ... I believe each will be getting the content for their half of the season.

BTW: Fox has picked up the rest of the schedule -
NASCAR completes TV package with Fox Sports

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR completed its $8.2 billion television package Thursday by adding two years to its deal with Fox Sports and setting a schedule that gives the network the first 16 Sprint Cup races beginning in 2015.

Fox Sports last year signed a deal for the first 13 Cup races beginning with the 2015 season and the latest deal gives the network three more Cup races to go with the first 14 Nationwide Series races. Fox Sports also extended the contract it had signed last year by two years, so it now runs through 2024 and is the same length as the deal NBC Sports signed last week.
 
Fox Sports will air nine Cup races on its network. The other seven will air on the Fox Sports 1 cable channel.

NBC Sports said last week seven of its 20 races would air on NBC. Coupled with Fox's broadcast races, NASCAR in 2015 will have 16 total races on a network broadcast — the same number as this year.

The first 14 Nationwide Series race and the entire Truck Series schedule will air on Fox Sports 1, the all-sports network that launches this month. The Truck Series race from Michigan International Speedway on Aug. 17 will be the network's first live event, and NASCAR will be an anchor property for Fox Sports 1.
