More races will be shown on network television in the 2022 Cup Series schedule.
The broadcast schedule for the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season has been released by the sanctioning body for stock car racing. There have been a number of significant improvements, notably the availability of the most races on network television since 2009.
During the 2022 Cup Series season, there will be 19 races on network television, according to the broadcast schedule. FOX will broadcast ten episodes, while NBC will broadcast nine. This is an increase over the 2021 season, when only 18 races were broadcast on network television and the remainder were broadcast on cable. There were ten on FOX and eight on NBC. The rest was shared between Fox Sports 1 and NBC Sports Network.

In addition, for the first time since 2009, more races will be broadcast on network television than on cable networks during the 2022 season. Six races will be broadcast on FS1 and 11 on the USA Network. The Clash at the LA Memorial Coliseum, the Duel at Daytona, and the All-Star Race will all be non-points races on FS1.
After 3 p.m., the majority of races will begin.
The majority of races will be held in the late afternoon for the 2022 season, which is a big change. After 3 p.m. ET, there will be 29 points-paying events, including night races at Martinsville, Bristol Motor Speedway (dirt), Charlotte Motor Speedway, Darlington Raceway, Daytona International Speedway, and Bristol Motor Speedway (playoffs).
The following races will be held between 2:00 and 2:30 p.m. ET. The Daytona 500, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway (playoffs), Charlotte Roval (playoffs), Las Vegas Motor Speedway (playoffs), Homestead-Miami Speedway (playoffs), and Martinsville Speedway (playoffs) are all on this list (playoffs).
The decision to move the races until after 3 p.m. will raise concerns about more weather delays, but the sanctioning organization explained why. The number of fans attending races or tuning in from their homes, according to Brian Herbst, NASCAR Senior Vice President of Media and Productions, had a huge effect.
“We will be able to present the best racing in the world to an even bigger audience in 2022 by working with broadcast partners, tracks, teams, and industry stakeholders,” Herbst stated in a news release. “Data-driven… Nokia News – Quick Recap
