Bear in mind that starting times listed for NASCAR Sprint Cup races are actual starting times now.  Usually, ESPN begins pre-race coverage at least 30 minutes prior to each race.  The new standardized starting times are 1:00 PM ET for day races taking place in the east and mid-west, 3:00 PM ET for day races taking place in the west, and 7:30 PM ET for night races.  So for a day race in the east that starts at 1:00 PM ET, the Invocation should start at about 1:02 PM ET.  So don't be late!

Grand-Am Road Racing,
a/k/a Grand-Am, has merged with the American Le Mans Series.  The two series will fully merge in 2014 under the banner of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, with the International Motor Sports Association.

In 2014-


For the first time, all 24 hours of the Rolex 24 at Daytona can be seen from the comfort of your man cave.  The 52nd running of the Rolex 24 at Daytona will be broadcast on Saturday, January 25th, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM on the FOX Network, from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM on FOX Sports 2, from 9:00 PM to 7:00 AM, you can view streaming video from www.IMSA.com, with the audio from MRN Radio, and on Sunday, January 26th, from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM, the conclusion of the race will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1.

All NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Races will be broadcast on either FOX Sports 1 or FOX Sports 2.

The first 14 NASCAR Xfinity Series races will be broadcast on either FOX or FOX Sports 1.

The remaining NASCAR Xfinnity Series Races will be broadccast on either NBC or NBCSN.

The Sprint Unlimited, formerly known as the Budweiser Shootout, will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1.

The Budweiser Qualifying Duels @ Daytona will be broadcast at night for the first time on FOX Sports 1.

The 56th Running of the Daytona 500 will be broadcast on the FOX Network

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series All-Star Race will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1.

NASCAR
Sprint Cup Series points races 01 through 13 will be broadcast on the FOX Network.

NASCAR
Sprint Cup Series points races 14 through 19 will be broadcast on TNT.

NASCAR

The Verizon Wireless
IndyCar Series- 13 Races will be broadcast on the NBC Sports Network or CNBC, and 5 races will be broadcast on ABC.

The 98th Running of the Indianapolis 500 will be broadcast on ABC.

Although the first Indianapolis 500 was run in 1911, it was not run during WW1 & WW2, thus the 98th running of the 500 is in 2014.  So, barring WW3, the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 will be in 2016.

The Tudor United SportsCar Championship Series, formerly known as the GRAND AM Series, will be broadcast all season long on
FOX Sports 1 or FOX Sports 2.

In 2015-

2014 is the last season that ESPN and TNT will carry NASCAR racing.  In 2015, the various network broadcast and cable channels of NBC, primarily the NBC Sports Network, will carry NASCAR, in addition to the 
FOX Network, and FOX Sports 1 & 2.  Details to come in the future.

Be advised, if you don't currently subscribe to FOX Sports 2, you should consider it.  Some NASCAR Sprint Cup, Nationwide, and Camping World Truck Series practices and qualifying laps will be broadcast on FOX Sports 2 this season.  A portion of the 24 Hours of Rolex at Daytona will be broadcast on FOX Sports 2.  And also portions of the Barrett-Jackson Auctions will be broadcast on FOX
Sports 2 this year.  All of this content was previously seen on SPEED.  However, as you know, SPEED is no longer with us.   

Also in 2015-
Nationwide Insurance did not renew it's title entitlement sponsorship for what we now know as the NASCAR Nationwide Series.  Beginning in January of 2015, and for the next 10 years, that racing series will be known as the NASCAR XFINITY Series.


Just to keep all the
FOXs straight, when I make reference to the FOX Network, I am referring to the channel that they broadcast the Cup series on, which is the same channel that they broadcast "American Idol" and "The Simpsons" on.  The FOX Network is a broadcast channel.  And then we have FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports 2both of which are cable channels.  Got it?


I will post the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying order every week, as soon as it is available.

Respectfully Submitted,
