NTT Indycar Series Drives Into 2024 Season at Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg This Sunday at 12 p.m. ET on NBC, Peacock, and Universo

NBC Sports presents the 2024 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season opener at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg (Fla.) this Sunday live at 12 p.m. ET on NBC, Peacock, and Universo. Pre-race coverage leads into race coverage getting underway at 12:30 p.m. ET. Six of the first eight races will air on NBC to begin the season. Peacock is once again the one-stop-shop for INDYCAR fans this season, streaming all races as well as exclusive coverage of nearly all qualifying and practice sessions.

Reigning and two-time INDYCAR champion Alex Palou is part of a star-studded group of drivers in the series’ paddock that includes six-time champion Scott Dixon, two-time champion and reigning Indianapolis 500 champion Josef Newgarden, two-time series champion Will Power, and 2023 Rookie of the Year Marcus Armstrong, among others. 2022 Indianapolis 500 champion Marcus Ericsson looks to defend his victory at last season’s Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.

NBC Sports’ lead INDYCAR commentary team of Leigh Diffey (play-by-play), Townsend Bell (analyst) and James Hinchcliffe (analyst) will call the race. Hinchcliffe won the St. Petersburg race 11 years ago in 2013, which marked his first career INDYCAR victory. Marty Snider, Georgia Henneberry, and Kevin Lee will provide reports from pit road.

Live coverage of qualifying, practice sessions and race-day warmups from St. Petersburg Friday-Sunday will stream exclusively on Peacock. The INDY NXT by Firestone season opening race will also be presented from St. Petersburg on Sunday at 10 a.m. ET on Peacock.

For a third consecutive season, Telemundo Deportes will provide Spanish-language coverage of three INDYCAR races in 2024, including this weekend’s season opener, the Indianapolis 500 and the season finale at Nashville Superspeedway. Coverage airing on Universo will also stream live on Telemundo.com and the Telemundo app. Host Veronica Rodriguez will anchor studio coverage with race announcer Sergio Rodriguez, analyst Jaime Macias, and reporter Ariana Figuera on the call for the three races.

Last year, NBC Sports’ coverage of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES delivered the most-watched INDYCAR season in 12 years (since 2011) and NBC Sports’ most-watched season on record, and the most-streamed season ever. Click here for more information.

MONSTER ENERGY SUPERCROSS: BIRMINGHAM

The 2024 SuperMotocross World Championship series and Monster Energy Supercross season continues this weekend from Protective Stadium in Birmingham, Ala., on Saturday live at 7 p.m. ET exclusively on Peacock. This will be the first Supercross race in Alabama since 1984.

Last week in Daytona, on a course designed by NBC Sports analyst and 15-time SuperMotocross champion Ricky Carmichael, Jett Lawrence (160 pts) won his third race of the season and extended his lead atop the 450SX Class standings, with Cooper Webb (150 pts) in second place and Chase Sexton in third with 147 points. In the Eastern Regional 250SX Class, Tom Vialle collected his first Supercross victory in the United States. After three races in the 250 East region, only eight points separates the top seven riders.

Race Day Live qualifying coverage on Saturday from Birmingham gets underway at 1:30 p.m. ET exclusively on Peacock. All live Supercross coverage, including races, heats, and qualifying, plus on-demand replays, will be available on Peacock this season. Click here for more details.
