Unlike last Sunday afternoon’s IndyCar race on the streets of Toronto, this weekend’s doubleheader at Iowa Speedway is not a Peacock exclusive.
IndyCar fans will be pleased to know that last Sunday afternoon’s Honda Indy Toronto on the streets of Exhibition Place in Toronto, Ontario was the one and only Peacock exclusive on this year’s 17-race schedule.
This meant that the 85-lap race around the 11-turn, 1.786-mile (2.874-kilometer) temporary street circuit could only be watched by fans who had purchased either a subscription of Peacock Premium or Peacock Premium Plus.
Each of the season’s first nine races had either been shown live on NBC or the NBCUniversal-owned USA Network, which became the alternative broadcast network to NBC throughout the IndyCar season after NBC Sports Network shut down at the end of 2021.
IndyCar hasn’t had a race on NBC since early June on the streets of Detroit.
Six of the final seven races on the schedule are set to be aired live on NBC, while the other one is set to be aired live on USA Network. All seven events can also be accessed on Peacock, but purchasing Peacock is not a requirement like it was for the most recent event.
Both races of this weekend’s doubleheader at Iowa Speedway, the Hy-Vee Homefront 250 presented by Instacart and the Hy-Vee One Step 250 presented by Gatorade, are set to be broadcast live on NBC.
The first 250-lap race around the four-turn, 0.894-mile (1.439-kilometer) Newton, Iowa oval is scheduled to begin at 3:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, July 22, and the second is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, July 23.
The only remaining race on this year’s IndyCar schedule which is not set to be shown live on NBC is the Gallagher Grand Prix, which is scheduled to take place at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course on Saturday, August 12. This race is set to be broadcast live on USA Network beginning at 2:00 p.m. ET.
