With the NASCAR playoffs on the horizon, summer's NASCAR races are delivering one terrific weekend showdown after the next. 

With four different networks airing the 36 NASCAR Cup Series races this season, finding out when and how to watch can make your head spin. We've taken the mystery out of figuring out how to watch NASCAR this season by bringing you everything you need to know about how to watch NASCAR in 2024. We're even making it easy for you to watch without cable


What networks air the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series races

Starting in 2025, NBC Sports will air all 36 NASCAR Cup Series races. Currently, racing fans can watch the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series races on NBC, USA Network, Fox and FS1, depending on the race. 


How to watch the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series races without cable

While most cable packages include NBC, USA Network, Fox and FS1, it's easy to watch NASCAR in 2024 if NBC, USA Network, Fox and FS1 aren't included in your cable TV subscription, or if you don't have cable at all. Your best options for watching are below. (Streaming options will require an internet provider.)

Sling TV: The most cost-effective way to watch NASCAR without cable

If you don't have cable TV that includes NBC, USA Network, Fox and FS1, one of the most cost-effective ways to stream live NASCAR races this year is through a subscription to Sling TV. The streamer offers access to all four channels airing NASCAR this season, plus local ABC affiliates (where available) with its Blue Tier plan.

The Sling TV Blue plan normally costs $45 per month, but the streamer is currently offering $10 off the first month of any pricing tier, so you'll pay just $35. (Some shoppers are seeing an introductory deal for $25 off the first month of Sling TV, though your experience may vary.) If you want to add ESPN, you can upgrade to the Orange + Blue Tier plan (recommended), which is currently $50 for the first month and $60 after that. You can learn more by tapping the button below.

Top features of Sling TV Blue tier:

  • There are 42 channels to watch in total, including local NBC, Fox, FS1 and USA affiliates (where available).
  • You get access to most local NFL games and nationally broadcast games at the lowest price.
  • All subscription tiers include 50 hours of cloud-based DVR storage, perfect for recording all of NASCAR's big moments this season.

Watch NASCAR in 2024 free with Fubo

You can also catch all NASCAR Cup Series races in 2024 on Fubo. Fubo is a sports-centric streaming service that offers access to NBC, USA, Fox and FS1, in addition to almost every televised sporting event in 2024 including MLB, NBA, NHL, MLS and international soccer games. There are over 180 channels on the Fubo Pro Tier to enjoy.

To watch NASCAR without cable, start a seven-day free trial of Fubo. You can begin watching immediately on your TV, phone, tablet or computer. Fubo's Pro Tier is priced at $80 per month after your free seven-day trial.

Sports fans will want to consider adding on the $7.99 per month Fubo Extra package, which includes MLB Network, NBA TV, NHL Network, Tennis Channel, SEC Network and more channels with live games. Or upgrade to the Fubo Elite tier and get all the Fubo Extra channels, plus the ability to stream in 4K, starting at $90 per month.

Top features of Fubo Pro Tier:

  • There are no contracts with Fubo -- you can cancel at any time.
  • The Pro tier includes over 180 channels, including NFL Network. (You'll need to upgrade to Ultimate for NFL RedZone.)
  • FuboTV includes all the channels you'll need to watch college and pro football on network TV, including CBS (not available through Sling TV).
  • All tiers come with 1,000 hours of cloud-based DVR recording.
  • Stream on your TV, phone, tablet and other devices.

Watch NASCAR races on Hulu + Live TV

You can watch NASCAR this season with Hulu + Live TV. The bundle features access to 90 channels, including Fox and FS1, NBC and USA. Unlimited DVR storage is also included. Watch every Cup Series race on every network with Hulu + Live TV, plus catch almost all live NFL games next season, exclusive live regular season games, popular studio shows (including NFL Total Access and the Emmy-nominated show Good Morning Football) and lots more. With Hulu + Live TV, you'll have access to live local network affiliate programming without the hefty price of a cable subscription. 

Hulu + Live TV comes bundled with ESPN+ and Disney+ for $77 per month after a three-day free trial.


Watch NASCAR on NBC and USA Network with Peacock

Peacock offers its subscribers live-streaming access to NASCAR races that air on NBC and USA. The streaming service has plenty more live sports to offer, including Big Ten football, Premier League soccer and WWE wrestling (including formerly PPV-only events such as Wrestlemania). There are 80,000 hours worth of recorded content to watch as well, including hit movies and TV series such as "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation."

A Peacock subscription costs $6 per month. An annual plan is available for $60 per year, which is the least expensive option. You can cancel anytime.

Top features of Peacock:

  • If you only want to watch NBC and USA-aired races, it's your least expensive option. If you want to watch stream NASCAR races on other networks, there are better choices above.
  • Peacock features plenty of current and classic NBC and Bravo TV shows.

Watch NASCAR races live with a digital HDTV antenna

You can also watch NASCAR on network TV with an affordable indoor antenna, which pulls in local over-the-air HDTV channels such as CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, PBS, Univision and more. Here's the kicker: There's no monthly charge.

For anyone living in a partially blocked-off area (those near mountains or first-floor apartments), a digital TV antenna may not pick up a good signal -- or any signal at all. But for many homes, a digital TV antenna provides a seriously inexpensive way to watch sports without paying a cable company. Indoor TV antennas can also provide some much-needed TV backup if a storm knocks out your cable.

This ultra-thin, multi-directional Mohu Leaf Supreme Pro digital antenna with a 65-mile range can receive hundreds of HD TV channels, including ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Fox and Univision and can filter out cellular and FM signals. It delivers a high-quality picture in 1080p HDTV, top-tier sound and features a 12-foot digital coax cable.
