NASCAR President Steve Phelps knew ahead of time that NBCUniversal was going to shut down its sports channel NBCSN by the end of the year. But Phelps said that he does not know how that closure will affect his sport. Sources said many of the NBCSN races would head to USA Network. Some of the qualifying events would be streamed on Peacock.
“We’ll sit down with them and determine what that’s going to look like for us in the back half of our season, which is when they are broadcasting us,” Phelps said as part of the inaugural “SBJ Spotlight” video series, which was released today. “And then what it looks like for 2022. I don’t have concerns. We are a cornerstone property for them.”
