NBC Sports Signs Six-Year Deal To Add IMSA To Nacar, IndyCar Roster

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

April 30, 2018: NBC Sports Group, which already broadcasts Nascar and IndyCar, is adding to its auto racing platform via a six-year deal with the International Motor Sports Assn. for its flagship IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. beginning with the 2019 season.

The competition, currently known as the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and the IMSA Prototype Challenge Presented by Mazda, has been on Fox.

Financial terms of the deal were not released.

In March, NBC Sports Group and IndyCar unveiled a multi-year media rights agreement under which NBC Sports has acquired the rights to present all IndyCar races — including crown jewel event the Indy 500 — as well as qualifying, practices, and Indy Lights races across its platforms beginning in 2019.

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.”

The 2019 season begins with the 57th Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 26-27, 2019 and the entire season broadcast schedule will be announced in the coming months.
