2022 NTT Indycar Series Season Continues At Texas Sunday At 12:30 P.M. Et On NBC & PEACOCK

STAMFORD, Conn. – March 17, 2022 – The 2022 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season continues with live coverage of the XPEL 375 from Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth this Sunday at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock. Pre-race coverage leads into race coverage, which gets underway at 1 p.m. ET.

The race marks the second of six races airing on NBC to begin the season. A post-race show will be presented immediately following race coverage featuring driver interviews, analysis and the podium ceremony at approximately 3 p.m. ET exclusively on Peacock.

Seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson will make his INDYCAR oval debut at Texas, a track in which he won seven races as a NASCAR driver. In 2020, the winners circle at Texas Motor Speedway was re-named the “Jimmie Johnson Winner’s Circle” for his NASCAR accomplishments.

Reigning INDYCAR champion Alex Palou is part of a star-studded group of drivers that includes six-time INDYCAR champion Scott Dixon, two-time INDYCAR champion Josef Newgarden, four-time and defending Indianapolis 500 champion Helio Castroneves, and former Formula One racer Romain Grosjean, among others. Scott McLaughlin took the checkered flag for his first career INDYCAR victory at the season opener Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in Florida, with Palou and Will Power rounding out the podium.

The lead INDYCAR commentary team of Leigh Diffey (play-by-play), Townsend Bell (analyst) and James Hinchcliffe (analyst) will call the race. Marty Snider and Kelli Stavast will provide reports from pit road.

Live coverage of qualifying and practice sessions from Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday will exclusively stream on Peacock. For more information about INDYCAR on Peacock and how to sign up, click here.

The inaugural race of the 2022 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season delivered the series’ most-watched season-opener in 11 years, as the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in Florida averaged a Total Audience Delivery (TAD) of 1.429 million viewers on NBC and Peacock, making it not only the most-watched INDYCAR season opener in 11 years (St. Pete, 2011, 1.840 million, ABC), but also the most-watched non-Indy 500 INDYCAR race in 11 years.
