NHRA, Fox Sports Announce TV Schedule for Remainder of 2021 Season
NHRA and FOX Sports announced today the remainder of the 2021 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series television schedule.
The 2021 Camping World Series features eight telecasts on the FOX Broadcast Network (FOX), including the season-opener in Gainesville which saw viewership of nearly 2 million NHRA fans glued to their TVs during eliminations.
One of the seven events remaining on FOX will be the prestigious Dodge//SRT NHRA U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis. NHRA fans will see their favorite drivers battle for their place in the NHRA Countdown to the Championship.
“The strength of our partnership with FOX Sports is evident with our 2021 programming slate,” said Steve Reintjes, NHRA Vice President of Broadcasting. “Our successful season-launch on FOX in Gainesville was followed by quality productions in Las Vegas, Atlanta, and the Charlotte 4-wide. We’re excited to hit our stride with a strong programming lineup and an exciting opportunity to race adjacent to an NFL singleheader on FOX during our Charlotte 2 fall event.”
Brian Lohnes and two-time NHRA Funny Car champion Tony Pedregon return to the booth for the FOX NHRA broadcast team, with reporting from two-time NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series national champion Bruno Massel, Amanda Busick, Jamie Howe and John Kernan.
FOX Sports and NHRA also are scheduling 16 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series broadcasts, and 12 E3 Spark Plugs Pro Mod Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service broadcasts across FOX Sports networks.
NHRA races will appear in Canada and the Caribbean through FOX Sports Racing, as well as through the FOX Sports app.
