A new car, new race tracks and new rivalries reshaped the NASCAR Cup Series this season, fueling on-track action and off-track story lines worthy of their own TV series.
Fortunately for fans, that‘s exactly what‘s in store this fall.
NBC Universal announced Friday in a press release that USA Network‘s new unscripted series “Race for the Championship” will premiere Thursday, September 1, 2022 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
The announcement also included the first official trailer for the series.
The 10-episode series will tell the story of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season and NASCAR Playoffs, from the competitive introduction of the Next Gen car at the Busch Light Clash at The LA Coliseum through the treacherous postseason road that brings four drivers their chance at championship glory in Phoenix.
