NASCAR joined the various sports leagues racing into the future by striking a new rights deal with Amazon‘s Prime Video that will put the auto sports organizer into the world of streaming.

Amazon’s Prime Video will split a group of ten races with Warner Bros. Discovery’s TNT, which is rejoining NASCAR’s rights roster after a period away. Fox and NBCUniversal, which have been NASCAR’s primary rights vehicles in the recent past, struck new deals to carry 14 events each.

The pacts will cover seven years, beginning in 2025 and extending through the 2031 season. Financial terms of the agreements were not disclosed.

“Our goal was to secure long-term stability with an optimized mix of distribution platforms and innovative partners that would allow us to grow the sport while delivering our product to fans wherever they are – and we’ve achieved that today,” said Steve Phelps, president of NASCAR, in a statement. 

Under terms of the deal, both Amazon and Warner will also secure exclusive rights to certain practice and qualifying sessions. Some of Warner’s coverage will stream on Max.
