USA Network, not NBC, is set to be broadcast this coming Sunday afternoon’s NASCAR Cup Series race live from Pocono Raceway.
Four races into NBC’s portion of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series schedule, two races have been shown live on NBC and two races have been shown live on USA Network, the NBCUniversal-owned network which became the new alternative broadcast channel during NBC’s portion of the broadcast schedule after NBC Sports Network shuttered operations at the end of 2021.
This coming Sunday afternoon’s HighPoint.com 400 at Pocono Raceway is the third straight race that is set to be aired on USA Network as opposed to NBC.
It is the third of six regular season races on USA Network’s schedule and the third of 10 overall races on USA Network’s schedule this season.
USA Network is currently in the midst of a five-week stretch of airing NASCAR Cup Series races.
The upcoming races at Richmond Raceway on Sunday, July 30 and Michigan International Speedway on Sunday, August 6 are both set to be broadcast live on USA Network as well. The final regular season race on USA Network is scheduled to take place at Watkins Glen International on Sunday, August 20.
USA Network’s four playoff races are the first four playoff races, as NBC is set to show the final six races of the season. NBC’s two remaining regular season races are scheduled to take place at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course on Sunday, August 13 and Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, August 26.
Hendrick Motorsports’ Chase Elliott is the reigning winner at the three-turn, 2.5-mile (4.023-kilometer) oval in Long Pond, Pennsylvania after taking the checkered flag in third place last year.
The top two drivers, Joe Gibbs Racing teammates (at the time) Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch, were disqualified after the race, giving Elliott his first ever victory at the Tricky Triangle.
