Eight of the 11 scheduled NASCAR Canadian Tire Series events in 2014 will have one-hour shows telecast nationally on a tape-delayed basis on TSN, RDS and RDS2 while the Sept. 20 season finale at Kawartha Speedway will be 90 minutes in duration. Additionally, RDS2 will provide live coverage of the Sunday, Aug. 10 event at Quebec's Circuit de Trois-Rivieres.
TSN will also have coverage of Trois-Rivieres, as well as the Sunday, Aug. 31 event in which the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series is joined by the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Ontario's Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. Air times for those telecasts will be announced at a later date.
"We are very pleased to again team up with TSN and RDS to bring the excitement and action that are synonymous with the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series to fans across Canada," said George Silbermann, NASCAR vice president of regional and touring series. "Canada's premier stock-car series provides a tremendous racing experience in person, and this television package allows fans throughout the country an opportunity to follow the series all year long."
The 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series telecast schedule will conclude with the season in review show on Saturday, Nov. 22 on TSN.
The programs are produced by Fuel MediaLab and NASCAR Media Group, and include race coverage, driver interviews and features. All coverage will be broadcast in HD.
For NASCAR Canadian Tire Series broadcasts on TSN, Dave Bradley will have play-by-play duties while Adam Ross and Billy Rowse Jr. will share color analysis. They will be joined by host Vic Rauter and pit reporters Todd Lewis and Spencer Lewis. Didier Schraenen and Eric Descarries will handle calling the action on the RDS side.
