ARCA extends broadcast deal with Fox Sports

New agreement now concludes in 2024, extending a 26-year broadcast relationship.

The Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) Menards Series has extended its broadcast deal with Fox Sports for a further two years.

Ending in 2024, the new contract also expands the number of events covered, as all 20 races will be shown live on either Fox Sports 1 or Fox Sports 2 pay-TV networks. This represents an increase of 11 races from 2022 and 12 races from between 2018 and 2021.

14 races will be shown on Fox Sports 1, while all other races will air on Fox Sports 2, including the championship finale at Toledo Speedway.

The new agreement extends a 26-year relationship between ARCA and Fox Sports that began in 1997.

“ARCA has a well-documented history of building long-term relationships with partners that add value to all stakeholders involved with the series,” said president of ARCA, Ron Drager.

“This is evidenced by our network television relationship with FOX Sports spanning more than 25 years. Together, we deliver high quality motorsports content that reaches millions of homes, directly benefitting our fans, partners, race teams and tracks.”

Frank Wilson, vice president of Event and Studio at Fox Sports, added: “It’s amazing that 2023 will be Fox Sports’ 27th season with the ARCA Menards Series and Ron Drager and his team.

“The ARCA season opener in Daytona has always been a tentpole in our SpeedWeeks coverage, and now that we will carry the entire ARCA season, we look forward to continuing to deliver even more high-quality stock car racing all season long.”
