Here are highlights of NBC Sports’ NASCAR Hot Pass simulcast on NBCSN:

  • Isolated cameras dedicated to each of the Championship Four drivers
  • Continuous team radio communication from each of the Championship Four drivers
  • On-air graphics highlighting point differentials and field changes between the drivers, as well an independent pane of race facts and figures to give viewers up to the minute statistics about the race.
  • The return of the Dale Jr. Spy Cam, which made its debut at Martinsville, which will provide a behind-the-scenes look into the broadcast booth with Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Burton.

In addition to live television coverage, NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app will provide live streaming coverage of NBC’s race broadcast and NBCSN’s Hot Pass presentation.
