NASCAR, in conjunction with broadcast partners FOX Sports and NBC Sports, has announced the start times for the NASCAR Xfinity Series races scheduled for 2023.

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Nov. 10, 2022) -- NASCAR, in conjunction with broadcast partners FOX Sports and NBC Sports, has announced the start times for the NASCAR Xfinity Series races scheduled for 2023.

As in 2022, five NXS races will air live on broadcast channels next season, one on FOX Sports and four on NBC. The first will air on FOX on May 13 at the legendary Darlington (S.C.) Raceway. NBC will air its four network races from the big road course at Road America (Saturday, July 29), Michigan International Speedway (Saturday, Aug. 5), Kansas Speedway (Saturday, Sept. 9) and Homestead-Miami Speedway (Saturday, Oct. 21). The race at Homestead-Miami will be the second event in the Round of 8 in the NXS Playoffs.

FOX Sports 1 will have 13 NXS races on its network, beginning with the season opener at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 18 and running through the event at Sonoma Raceway on June 10.

The remaining 15 events on the NBC portion of the NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule will be aired on USA Network for the second consecutive season. That portion of the schedule will begin July 1 at the inaugural Chicago Street Race through the streets of the Windy City and end with the NXS Championship Race at Phoenix Raceway on Nov. 4.

"Over the last few years, we’ve worked closely with our broadcast partners, tracks, teams, drivers, and industry stakeholders to deliver some of the most bold and innovative schedules in NASCAR’s history, and 2023 is no exception," said Brian Herbst, NASCAR senior vice president of media and productions. "We will always look for opportunities to expand the distribution of our world-class racing product to NASCAR’s loyal fanbase."
