Red Bull GRC opener highlights NBCSN motors coverage this weekend


While both Formula 1 and Verizon IndyCar Series don’t have races this weekend – F1 is off and IndyCar has qualifying from the Indianapolis 500 Saturday and Sunday – there’s still no shortage of racing and automotive content this weekend on NBCSN.

The Red Bull Global Rallycross season opener from Arizona – a doubleheader event at the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park outside of Phoenix – kicks off NBC and NBCSN’s coverage of the championship this year. Coverage of both races air Sunday, 2 p.m. ET, on NBCSN.

Toby Moody and Anders Krohn will have the coverage in the booth, with Kristen Kenney reporting in the pits.

NBC and NBCSN’s planned coverage of the Red Bull Global Rallycross season is linked below. NBC and NBCSN will air 25 hours of coverage of the 2016 Red Bull Global RallyCross series, with most events premiering on NBC, and encore presentations airing on NBCSN.
