@igloo22 Sprint Cup is currently shown elsewhere, though of course we always keep our options open as regards future programming.
@amg-fan I only have schedules through March as the amount of live events on Motors TV this year has increased significantly. Most races this year will be live but a few will be delayed-as-live. On Saturday we have Daytona live and next month we’ll have Phoenix, Vegas and Fontana live with Bristol delayed. I’d say this sort of ratio (four live to one delayed) is pretty representative of how the season will go.
@shaneb12345678910 Unfortunately we’re not on Freesat, and we’re not available in Ireland.
@mrgrieves The difference is primarily that Nationwide is designated as the second tier, so Cup is more prestigious, has more races and also involves the end-of-season ‘Chase’. However Cup drivers regularly compete in both series – for example at last year’s Daytona race the podium was locked out by Cup drivers. They are, however, ineligible for the title, which explains how Ricky Stenhouse Jr. took home the championship despite winning relatively few races.
In that sense Nationwide is a development series, a la GP2. But think GP2 with Vettel, Alonso and Button jumping in a car (on the same weekend as a grand prix) and giving it some every few races.
