The Indy 500 has aired every year since 1965 on ABC, including the upcoming race May 27.

According to NBC Sports, the U.S. media rights partnership with IMSA includes a “significant increase in network coverage of the WeatherTech Championship over 2018.”

Three races will be broadcast on NBC, with more than 45 hours of WeatherTech Championship action on NBCSN throughout the season.

In addition, NBC Sports said it would have more than 100 hours of IMSA coverage across its broadcast, cable and digital platforms. And the NBC Sports App and NBCSports.com will offer flag-to-flag live streaming coverage of every WeatherTech Championship race to authenticated subscribers.

The new media rights coincides with Daytona Beach-Fla.-based IMSA celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019.

“As the U.S. home of motorsports, we are excited to present IMSA’s high-quality and diverse racing circuit to our abundance of racing fans,” Jon Miller, president-programming, NBC Sports and NBCSN, said in a statement.

“By utilizing our wide-array of broadcast, cable, and digital platforms, we can service IMSA and motorsports fans with more coverage and in more ways than ever before.”

Among recent highlights of IMSA racing are record attendance at each race this year, unique TV viewership for the year anticipated to surpass last year’s record of 6.5 million viewers and significant digital and social media growth.

There has also been a 50% increase in hours of live race coverage streamed by fans, and a 14% increase in combined video views over previous years.

Top drivers include Helio Castroneves, Juan Pablo Montoya and Fernando Alonso.

According to IMSA CEO Ed Bennett.“We have enjoyed a long and rewarding partnership with Fox and they have helped grow our sport over the years.

“Fox has been an outstanding partner and been instrumental in elevating the status of IMSA and its championships. We want to send our deepest appreciation to them for their unwavering support.”
