Nascar extends Premier Sports UK rights deal

Nascar has renewed its broadcast rights deal with Premier Sports.

The UK pay-TV broadcaster will continue to show the US stock car-racing series for a further five years.

The new contract will run from 2018 to 2022.

The agreement includes live coverage of the Nascar Xfinity Series and the Nascar Camping World Truck Series, alongside the top-tier Nascar Monster Energy Cup Series.

The financial terms of the extension have not been disclosed.

Premier Sports agreed a three-year contract with Nascar in 2015 which expired at the end of the 2017 season.

The broadcaster’s renewed coverage began with the invitation-only Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona International Speedway, while the season proper will begin at the same venue with the celebrated Daytona 500 on 18th February. Coverage of the race will also be available on the free-to-air FreeSports channel.
