This year’s NASCAR season is racing onwards, but, of course, you’ll need to dial in your cable or streaming subscriptions to catch all the action live. Luckily, there are a handful of easy ways to watch NASCAR online in 2023 — and even a few ways to stream NASCAR for free online.
Read on for key information about this year’s NASCAR season, including where to watch NASCAR races online and on TV.
How to Watch NASCAR on TV
If you have a cable plan and want to watch NASCAR on live TV, the channels you’ll need are Fox, FS1, NBC, and USA Network. These channels split NASCAR coverage, so you’ll want all four to watch every NASCAR race on live TV.
How to Watch NASCAR Online Without Cable
Don’t have cable? Not a problem. There are plenty of ways to watch NASCAR online without cable: Below are some of the best streaming services that let you watch NASCAR live streams online. These services will let you watch NASCAR on Roku, Firestick, and other streaming devices, as well as your phone, laptop, or tablet.
Note: Be sure to check each streamer service’s channel lineup to make sure Fox and NBC are available in your area.
Editor’s Pick: DirecTV Stream
Also Great: Sling

With Fox, FS1, NBC, and USA in its extensive channel lineup — and a five-day free trial — DirecTV Stream is our favorite streaming way to watch DirecTV Stream online. You’ll need DirecTV Stream’s Choice package to access the regional channels (Fox and NBC), which brings a total of over 90 channels. This Choice package costs $99.99 a month after the five-day free trial.
2. Watch NASCAR on Sling
A cheaper way to watch NASCAR without cable is to get a live TV streaming service like Sling. You’ll get access to live TV channels including Fox, FS1, NBC, and USA Network, making Sling an easy way to live stream NASCAR online. The Sling Blue package (which gets you all the channels for NASCAR) is also very well-priced at $45 a month.
