2015 NASCAR touring series TV schedule on NBCSN

4 Comments

A total of 39 NASCAR touring series events – featuring both divisions of the K&N Pro Series, the Whelen Modified Tour, and the Whelen Southern Modified Tour – will be broadcast on NBCSN this season.

NBCSN’s touring series TV schedule will begin Feb. 19 at 10:30 p.m. ET with the broadcast of the Feb. 15 K&N East season opener at New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway.

The event will mark the official series debut for sprint car sensation Rico Abreu, who will run the full K&N East season as part of HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks.

Four dates – June 4, July 2, July 23, and Oct. 22 – will have multiple race broadcasts. July 23 features three events from New Hampshire Motor Speedway: An All-Star event for the Whelen Modified Tour, a points race for that same series, and a K&N East race.

In addition to broadcasting events from several familiar Sprint Cup settings, NBCSN will also take you to some of the most revered short tracks in the country like Greenville Pickens (S.C.) Speedway, Thompson (Conn.) Speedway, Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway, South Boston (Va.) Speedway, and the “Madhouse” itself – Bowman-Gray (N.C.) Stadium.

Broadcast times for some dates in April and May have yet to be determined due to NBCSN’s coverage of the National Hockey League post-season. When those times are settled, we will pass them along to you.

It may be a week before Thanksgiving, but IndyCar driver Robert Wickens is already obviously in a festive Christmas mood.

Wickens took to Twitter and Instagram Wednesday to post a video showing he just gave himself an early yuletide present: a Christmas tree:

“Got myself a tree! I figured it’s time to get into the Christmas spirit! It’s a very real tree and my arms are itchy to prove it!”

He even ended his tweet with a Christmas tree emoji.

And for good measure, Wickens — wearing a winter ski cap with his name on it — and some of the staff at his rehab facility broke into an impromptu version of “Oh, Christmas Tree!”

Check out what Wickens posted and enjoy a little early Christmas cheer sure to put a smile on your face:
