Network shift this weekend


Just a heads up, the TV Networks will shift away from Fox and FoxSports-1 as NBC will cover the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona starting this week. The rest of the remaining races will be covered by NBC, and their affiliate NBC Sports Net (most will be on NBCSN), and the sole exception will be Watkins Glen in August that will be on USA Network.
