Nascar, the US-based stock car racing series, has agreed a renewed broadcast rights deal with pay-television operator Fox Sports in Mexico until 2024.
The agreement, which was brokered by Nascar’s agency partner IMG, includes all three national series, the Nascar Mexico Series, and sister properties IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship, IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, and American Flat Track.
Fox Sports Mexico, a longtime broadcast partner of Nascar, will broadcast all Nascar Cup Series races, with its coverage beginning last Sunday (February 20) for the flagship Daytona 500.
The broadcaster will also air the Nascar Xfinity Series, Nascar Camping World Truck Series, Nascar Mexico races, and all associated practice and qualifying sessions.
Nascar claims its races will be available in over 190 countries and territories this season.
The stock car racing series is additionally available via its direct-to-consumer offering, Nascar Trackpass.
Nascar has also confirmed a rights deal in Brazil with commercial broadcaster Bandeirantes until 2024.
That last campaign saw a record international broadcast reach for Nascar, with sports marketing agency IMG, which has a 10-year international media rights distribution deal with the sport, having secured coverage deals in nearly 200 countries and territories in over 25 languages.
Meanwhile, the IndyCar motor racing series will be shown in more than 200 countries and territories around the world during the 17-race 2022 season.
The series has signed up major international broadcast partners across Europe, Latin America, Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa.
The broadcasters include ESPN (Latin America), Sky (UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy), Stan Sport (Australia), Canal Plus (France, Switzerland, and sub-Saharan Africa), Movistar Plus (Spain), Gaora (Japan), Ziggo Sport (Netherlands), Viaplay (Nordics, Poland, Iceland, and Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania), Sportsnet (Canada), Sky Sports (New Zealand), Supersport (South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa), Network 4 (Hungary), Arena Sport (Balkans), Viasat Sport East (Russia and CIS region), Sport TV (Portugal), and VOO Sport (Belgium).
The 2022 season begins with the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on Sunday (February 27).
Mark Miles, president and chief executive of Penske Entertainment Corp, said: “We’ve prioritized relationships that expand both our reach and visibility, bringing our racing action to new audiences and expanding our fan base. We’re pleased to welcome back more than two-thirds of our 2021 partners while adding exciting new ones to our growing lineup, as well.”
