The article presents information on the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing's (NASCAR's) new television deal. NASCAR's new TV contract is a big deal only if one cares which network and announcers bring him his sports. For the record, starting in 2007, the first 13 races will be on FOX, the next six on TNT and the final 17 on ABC or ESPN. The biggest news from last week's announcement is that ESPN again will be "allowed" to have news programs devoted to NASCAR. The new deal will allow ESPN to air NASCAR-branded programming from which race fans may slake their thirst for news.
