ESPN to Air Bulk of ABC's NASCAR Races in 2010
ESPN executive vice president John Skipper says the decision is based on the cable network’s higher ratings.
ESPN has aired six races a year the past three seasons, while ABC has had 11 each year.
ESPN’s portion of the NASCAR schedule will begin with the July 25 race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. ABC will air Saturday night races at Bristol, Richmond and Charlotte.
