Street Race in Detroit is not broadcast on NBC

There will be no break in the action after the 108th running of the Indy 500, as the NTT IndyCar Series will return to action this weekend for the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix on the streets of Detroit, Michigan.

IndyCar made the move from Belle Isle to downtown Detroit last year, with the series racing on the new nine-turn, 1.647-mile temporary street circuit for the first time. Before 2023, the series had not raced in “The Motor City” since 1991.

NBC has televised three consecutive races, including the Indy 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the two races preceding it at Barber Motorsports and the Indianapolis road course.

However, this Sunday afternoon’s 100-lap race will be shown live on USA Network, making it the second of six races on this year’s 18-race schedule on the NBCUniversal network, which took over from NBC Sports Network after NBC Sports Network. closed at the end of 2021.

The first was the race on the streets of Long Beach, California in April, and the other four are the races at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca on Sunday, June 23; World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway on Saturday, August 17; Portland International Raceway on Sunday, August 25; and the Milwaukee Mile on Sunday, September 1.

There are also two Peacock exclusives scheduled this year, compared to just one last year, meaning fans will need a subscription to Peacock Premium or Peacock Premium Plus to watch. Those races are the Street of Toronto, Ontario races on Sunday, July 21st and the Milwaukee Mile on Saturday, August 31st.

All remaining remaining races will be shown live on NBC.
