You can also see NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver in the broadcast booth. Jr. will join the NBC Sports broadcast booth for Chase for the Sprint Cup races at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday and Martinsville Speedway next week.
“I’m excited to see these races from a different vantage point and hopefully offer some insight to the viewers,” said Earnhardt Jr. in an NBC press release. “I thoroughly enjoyed my opportunity to broadcast the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Michigan earlier this year, so I expect getting to spend time in the booth with the NBC team to be just as fun.”
