This past Sunday afternoon’s lightning delayed NASCAR Cup Series race at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway was the final race on Fox Sports 1 on the 2023 schedule.

There is just one more race on the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series schedule before NBC and USA Network take over the broadcasting duties for the remainder of the season.

The NBC and USA Network portion of this year’s broadcast schedule includes the final 10 regular season events and all 10 playoff races.

NBC is set to kick things off after the season’s lone off weekend two weekends from now, with the Ally 400 scheduled to take place at Nashville Superspeedway on Sunday, June 25.

The final race before the switch is scheduled to occur is this Sunday afternoon’s Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway.

The Sonoma race is the 10th and final NASCAR Cup Series points race of the year which is set to be broadcast live on Fox.

Last Sunday’s race at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway was the sixth and final race to be broadcast live on Fox Sports 1 this season.

Both Fox and Fox Sports 1 each aired one of the two exhibition races, with the former taking the preseason Busch Light Clash exhibition race at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum back in February and the latter taking the All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro Speedway in May.

Jamie McMurray is set to be the guest analyst for this coming Sunday’s race, joining full-time announcers Mike Joy and Clint Bowyer.

At least for the foreseeable future, this is set to be the final time Fox utilizes the approach they have utilized since 2022, bringing in various guest analysts to call each race alongside Joy and Bowyer.

After he retires from Cup Series competition at the end of the 2023 season, Kevin Harvick is set to join the broadcast booth as a third full-time announcer in 2024.
