IndyCar and NBC have confirmed a multi-year extension of
their contract that will bring coverage of IndyCar races to NBC networks and Peacock
The deal will bring 13 races to NBC. USA Network and Peacock
Premium will show the remaining races, with two races exclusive to Peacock.
Those two races will be announced at a later date.
“NBC Sports is proud to extend its partnership with the NTT IndyCar Series and continue to serve as the exclusive home of the most competitive open-wheel racing series in the world and ‘The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,’” said Jon Miller, NBC Sports. “We have demonstrated NBCUniversal’s ability to make big events bigger with our presentations of the Indianapolis 500, we have worked closely with Roger Penske, Mark Miles and the entire team to expand IndyCar’s reach across the U.S, and we are thrilled to build upon our collaborative successes of the past few years.”
NBC Sports and IndyCar have had a partnership since 2009 when NBCSN (formerly called VERSUS) was the cable home of the IndyCar Series. NBC Sports became the exclusive home of IndyCar in 2019, which was also the year of NBC’s inaugural Indianapolis 500 broadcast.
The full 2022 NTT IndyCar Series coverage schedule on NBC,
USA Network and Peacock will be announced in the coming months.
