TNT Sports “thrilled” as Dale Earnhardt Jr. joins its NASCAR broadcast team

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is set to take on dual roles within the NASCAR broadcasting realm, aligning himself with both TNT Sports and Prime Video for the upcoming seasons. With TNT Sports, he’ll serve as an on-air commentator for five NASCAR Cup Series races each summer, airing consecutively on TNT and the Bleacher Report Sports tier on Max streaming service.

Additionally, Earnhardt will contribute to a new content series distributed across B/R’s social and digital platforms, featuring interviews conducted while driving each of TNT’s five Cup tracks with guests in the passenger seat.

Craig Berry, the executive vice president and chief content officer for TNT Sports, expressed enthusiasm about welcoming Dale to their team and highlighted his integral role in shaping their NASCAR coverage. Earnhardt’s involvement is seen as pivotal in executing the overall vision for TNT’s NASCAR broadcasting.

Earnhardt shared his excitement about joining TNT Sports, reminiscing about watching races on the network in the past and expressing nostalgia about their return to the sport. He also expressed eagerness to collaborate with Bleacher Report to create content aimed at engaging fans.

The announcement coincides with NASCAR’s unveiling of a new seven-year, multi-billion-dollar TV rights deal for its Cup Series, which includes a significant streaming component. Beginning in 2025, Prime Video will exclusively stream five NASCAR Cup events, marking a historic shift for the premier series.

Warner Brothers Discovery will carry the next five Cup races, simulcasting them on both TNT and the B/R Sports tier on Max. NBC Sports will handle the final 14 races of the season, including the championship finale.

Earnhardt’s illustrious racing career, boasting 26 Cup wins and eight playoff appearances, adds depth and credibility to his role as a commentator. His two Xfinity Series championships further solidify his position within the NASCAR community, making him a fitting addition to the broadcasting lineup for the upcoming seasons.
