2015 NASCAR touring series TV schedule on NBCSN


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.

IndyCar disappointed by delay of video game but aiming to launch at start of 2024

IndyCar video game 2024

An IndyCar executive said there is “absolutely” disappointment that its long-awaited video game recently was delayed beyond its target date, but the series remains optimistic about the new title.

“Well, I don’t know how quick it will be, but the whole situation is important to us,” Penske Entertainment president and CEO Mark Miles said during a news conference Monday morning to announce IndyCar’s NTT title sponsorship. “Motorsport Games has spent a lot of money, a lot of effort to create an IndyCar title. What we’ve seen of that effort, which is not completely obvious, is very reassuring.

“I think it’s going to be outstanding. That’s our shared objective, that when it is released, it’s just widely accepted. A great credit both to IndyCar racing, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, something that our fans love.”

In June 2021, IndyCar announced a new partnership with Motorsport Games to create and distribute an IndyCar video game for the PC and Xbox and PlayStation consoles in 2023.

But during an earnings call last week, Motorsport Games said the IndyCar game had been delayed to 2024 to ensure high quality.

Somewhat compounding the delay is that IndyCar’s license for iRacing expired after the end of the 2022 season because of its exclusive agreement with Motorsport Games.

That’s resulted in significant changes for IndyCar on iRacing, which had provided a high-profile way for the series to stay visible during its 2020 shutdown from the pandemic. (Players still can race an unbranded car but don’t race on current IndyCar tracks, nor can they stream).

That’s helped ratchet up the attention on having a video game outlet for IndyCar.

“I wish we had an IndyCar title 10 years ago,” said Miles, who has been working with the organization since 2013. “We’ve been close, but we’ve had these I think speed bumps.”

IndyCar is hopeful the Motorsports Game edition will be ready at the start of 2024. Miles hinted that beta versions could be unveiled to reporters ahead of the time “to begin to show the progress in a narrow way to make sure we’ve got it right, to test the progress so that we’re ready when they’re ready.”

It’s been nearly 18 years since the release of the most recent IndyCar video game for console or PC.

“(We) better get it right,” Miles said. “It’s something we’re very close to and continue to think about what it is to make sure we get it over the line in due course.”
