Netflix, the international streaming platform, is set to film a new documentary series tracking US stock car motor racing’s upcoming Nascar Cup Series playoffs and championship race later this year.

The series, which is set to premiere in early 2024, has already begun filming as drivers are competing to secure their spots in the playoffs which begin on September 3 at the Darlington Raceway in South Carolina.

The series is set to feature exclusive access to the Nascar drivers and teams, giving fans a behind-the-scenes look both on and away from the track, exploring “the physical and mental challenges of competing for a championship at the world’s highest level of stock car racing.”

The series will air as five 45-minute episodes, and its production will be a collaboration between production studio Words + Pictures and Nascar Studios, the sport's in-house content hub.

Earlier this year, Netflix renewed deals for three prominent sports docuseries in 2024 – golf’s Full Swing, tennis’ Break Point, and a sports docuseries around the US Women’s Soccer Team’s recent failed World Cup title defense in Australia and New Zealand.

Netflix confirmed that filming of US golf’s PGA Tour, as well as the men's ATP and women's WTA tennis tours for their 2023 seasons has already begun.
