Statement from Stewart-Haas Racing regarding plans for the No. 14 team at Atlanta
Xfinity, the cable and broadband division of Comcast, will sponsor what is now known at the Nationwide Series next year, according to a SportsBusinessDaily report.
The report said the deal is for $200 million over 10 years, with an average of $10 million to NASCAR and its season point fund plus a $10 million marketing commitment, according to the report.
Comcast owns NBC, which will begin broadcasting the final 20 Sprint Cup races and 19 Nationwide races next year in the first season of a 10-year deal. The money spent on marketing NASCAR’s No. 2 series will count as part of Comcast’s marketing commitment it has as part of the television package. Nationwide is leaving as the series sponsor to sponsor Hendrick Motorsports driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. in Cup next year.
According to the report, the sponsorship will be announced Wednesday.
Along with the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule, the 2015 schedules for the NASCAR Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series were unveiled Tuesday afternoon on FOX Sports 1’s NASCAR Race Hub.
