NASCAR has changed the broadcast networks for two upcoming Xfinity Series races, with one moving off of NBC and another moving onto it.
Two races on the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule have changed channels, with NBC losing one race to USA Network and, in turn, gaining one that had been set to be broadcast live on USA Network.
NBC and USA Network are set to take over for the remainder of the 2023 season after the first 14 races of the 33-race schedule were broadcast live on either Fox or Fox Sports 1. One race was shown live on Fox, while the other 13 aired on Fox Sports 1.
Just three of the remaining 12 races on the regular season schedule are set to be broadcast live on NBC, while the other nine are set to be broadcast live on USA Network.
The NASCAR Xfinity Series playoff schedule is where the recent changes have occurred.
The third race of the opening round of the playoffs is the Drive for the Cure 250, which is scheduled to take place at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval on Saturday, October 7. It was set to be broadcast live on USA Network beginning at 3:30 p.m. ET, but it is now set to be broadcast live on NBC beginning at 3:00 p.m. ET.
On the other hand, the Contender Boats 300, which is the second of three races on the schedule for the second round of the postseason, has now been moved from NBC to USA Network. It is still set to be broadcast live from Homestead-Miami Speedway beginning at 3:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, October 21.
The Contender Boats 300 had been the only Xfinity Series playoff race set to air on NBC. Now the Drive for the Cure 250 holds that distinction.
