Fox, NASCAR extend

NASCAR has completed its television deal by furthering its existing relationship with Fox Sports. Fox Sports on Thursday picked up the three remaining Sprint Cup Series races and the first 14 Nationwide Series races on the 2015 schedule. Fox Sports also extended the contract by two years to run through 2024 so it would be the same length as the deal NBC Sports signed last week. Fox Sports now has the first 16 races of the Cup schedule beginning in 2015. Nine will air on Fox Sports and seven on Fox Sports 1. NBC Sports said last week seven of its 20 races would air on broadcast NBC.
