Following the lone off weekend of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season, Nashville Superspeedway is set to host the Ally 400 this Sunday evening.
The lone off weekend of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season has come and gone, following the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway on Sunday, June 11. There are no more off weekends scheduled from now until the Championship 4 season finale at Phoenix Raceway on Sunday, November 5.
The first of 20 remaining races on this year’s schedule — and the first of 10 remaining races on this year’s regular season schedule — is the Ally 400, which is scheduled to take place this Sunday evening at Nashville Superspeedway.
But this 300-lap race around the four-turn, 1.333-mile (2.145-kilometer) Lebanon, Nashville oval, a track which returned to the NASCAR circuit in 2021 and hosted its first ever Cup Series race that year, will not be broadcast live on Fox — or Fox Sports 1, for that matter.
Fox’s portion of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series broadcast schedule officially wrapped up at Sonoma Raceway two weekends ago.
Since 2015, Fox and NBC have shared the broadcasting duties each Cup Series season, with the latter taking the reins for the season’s final 20 events, including the entire 10-race postseason.
There are 10 races on the calendar which are set to be broadcast live on NBC this year, with the other 10 set to be broadcast live on USA Network.
NBC Sports Network shut down at the end of 2021, and USA Network, which is owned by NBCUniversal, took their place as the alternative network during NBC’s portion of the broadcast schedule.
The broadcast booth consists of Rick Allen, Steve Letarte, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Jeff Burton.
The Ally 400, a race won last year by Hendrick Motorsports’ Chase Elliott, is the first of these 10 races which is set to be shown live on NBC.
Following this race, there are three more regular season races set to be broadcast live on NBC and six set to be broadcast live on USA Network. The first four playoff races are set to be shown live on USA Network, while the final six are set to be shown live on NBC.
Tune in to NBC at 7:00 p.m. ET this Sunday, June 25 for the live broadcast of the Ally 400 from Nashville Superspeedway. If you have not yet had the chance to start a free trial of FuboTV, take advantage of their current offer and do so today!
