Sometimes you are out and about but would still like to catch the race on the radio or online.

There are two major broadcasters of the NASCAR races: PRN and MRN.

Each network covers different tracks during the year so be sure to check the schedule to know how to find the correct broadcast. You won't be able to tune into the same place each week to find a broadcast of the race.

You can listen to these online or through many local radio stations.

Find out how to access them and what to expect when listening to the race.

You can also use NASCAR's Race View but it does have a monthly subscription fee.

PRN: Performance Racing Network

Any race at a track owned by Speedway Motorsports Incorporated will have the race broadcasted through PRN.

You can listen online to the race by going to

From there you can see the schedule of broadcasts that often include qualifying and pre-race coverage.

If you want to find the radio station in your area that will broadcast the race, you will need to check for Nationwide races and for Sprint cup races.

The following tracks are owned by Speedway Motorsports Incorporated. Any races here will be broadcast by PRN.

  • Atlanta Motor Speedway
  • Bristol Motor Speedway
  • Charlotte Motor Speedway
  • Kentucky Speedway
  • Las Vegas Motor Speedway
  • New Hampshire Motor Speedway
  • Sonoma Raceway
  • Texas Motor Speedway

Check the race schedule for that weekend to insure you are tuning into the right network.

How PRN Creates Their Broadcasts

MRN: Motor Racing Network

All tracks owned by International Speedway Corporation will have their broadcasts through MRN affiliates.

To listen to a race, pre-race or qualifying, go to

This link will only work when there is a race to be broadcast. However, MRN also has weekly shows analyzing and discussing the previous and upcoming races. You can find these at

If you want to find a local radio station that broadcasts the MRN races go to

From there you will need to scroll down to the "Find a Radio Station" link and choose your city and state.

MRN also gives you the option of planning a trip and mapping out the radio stations on your route to make sure you can still catch the race as you are driving.

  • Kansas Speedway
  • Martinsville Speedway
  • Michigan International Speedway

Examples of MRN Race Coverage

NASCAR Race View

If you are looking for a bit more than just a broadcast online, you might consider checking out NASCAR's Race View.

This app gives you options. You can subscribe to a broadcast or get full access.

The access includes a 3D rendering of the track right on your phone or mobile device.

You can customize your view, receive up-to-date stats, and even in-car audio between the driver and crew.

While this app can cost upwards of ten dollars a month or more, it may be just the perfect way for the hard core fan to follow his or her favorite driver and keep up with the minute-to-minute details of the race.

If you want to check out the app, go to

NASCAR will sometimes run specials with free trials, free races and discounts as the season continues.

Broadcast From the Race!

Most tracks also broadcast MRN or PRN right from the track.

So even on super speedways such as Daytona or Talladega, where it is impossible to see the action on the far side, you can still keep up via the radio announcers.

The broadcasters enhance the experience of the track.

At tracks like Charlotte, though, it is sometimes hard to hear. If you want to enhance your race experience, consider taking a portable radio/phone and headphones to tune into the coverage while you are watching the race.

There are many options available for keeping up with a race, even if you are not able to attend or watch it on TV.

With a bit of planning you may never have to miss a race!
