NBC Sports Network will air four ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards races in August, giving the national stock car racing series an even greater television presence.

Officials from the Automobile Racing Club of America made the announcement today during the Scott 160 race event weekend at Road America in Elkhart Lake.

“We couldn’t be more excited than to have the opportunity to secure additional exposure of the ARCA Racing Series on NBC Sports Network,” said Mark Gundrum, ARCA Vice President for Business Development and Corporate Partnerships. “This opportunity is great for the teams, sponsors and fans of the series.”

Three of the four NBC Sports Network events are scheduled to air on Thursday nights, with one event slated for Friday night. NBC Sports Network’s ARCA racing coverage premieres Thursday, August 1, at 11 p.m. ET with the Winchester Speedway race. The race from Berlin Raceway will air on Thursday, August 15, at 11 p.m. ET, and the Madison International Speedway event will air on Thursday night, August 29, at 11 p.m. ET. The event from the one-mile dirt oval at the Illinois State Fairgrounds will air on Friday, August 23 at 11 p.m. ET.

“We look forward to presenting the excitement of the ARCA Racing Series to motorsports fans on NBC Sports Network for the first time,” said Mike Perman, Vice President, Programming, NBC Sports Group.

    To ONE OF THESE so called 24 hours sport networks, how about someone picking up some minor league sports to broadcast. Hockey or baseball would be good to watch instead of showing repeats of crap from 30 years ago. All these 24 hour sports networks are anymore is spots talk surrounded by about 2 hours of live action

    NHL Network shows some minor league Junior and College hockey. ESPN shows all kings of college crap. Even college women’s softball!! College hoops is a huge draw. College football is shown. SPEED shows the 3000 series of Formula racing.

    That’s not enough?

    I wish NBC Sports would air the ARCA race again, my DVR screwed up and missed the Berlin race. This is great for ARCA and even better for the fans, I’m loving it!!!
