Dale Earnhardt Jr. is getting back into the TV broadcast booth.

Two booths, actually.

TNT and Prime Video announced today that the 15-time NASCAR Most Popular Driver will be part of broadcast teams at both TNT and Prime Video beginning in 2025.

As part of a new NASCAR TV deal for 2025 through 2031 that was announced this past November, Prime Video and TNT will be home for five Cup Series races apiece starting in 2025. FOX Sports, NBC Sports will continue with the bulk of the NASCAR broadcast, and with the new deal, fans will also find NASCAR race content on Peacock, USA, TruTV, and the B/R (Bleacher Report) Sports Add-On on Max.


All Xfinity Series content will be on the CW Network.

TNT and Amazon Prime will have exclusive rights to practice and qualifying sessions. Prime Video will carry practice and qualifying for almost the entire first half of the NASCAR Cup Series season (excluding the Busch Light Clash, Daytona 500, Duel at Daytona, and NASCAR All-Star Race).

The addition of Earnhardt is expected to bring that familiar big name in the booth that NASCAR and the broadcast partners hope will make this transition to newer outlets smoother for the fans.

“I’m honored to be a part of Prime Video’s entrance into NASCAR,” said Earnhardt Jr. “It is an exciting opportunity to have the chance to give our NASCAR fan base yet another way to watch the sport. It will be exciting to see the innovation that Prime Video is going to bring to our sport and the fans.”

Earnhardt worked for NBC from 2018 though the end of the 2023 campaign. His move to NASCAR's new TV partners had been rumored for weeks.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dale as an official member of the Amazon family, and build our NASCAR coverage around him,” said Jared Stacy, director of Global Live Sports Production, Prime Video. “One of the most beloved figures in racing history, Dale has an unrivaled passion for the sport. We are so excited for him to connect with NASCAR fans next season on Prime Video.”

Earnhardt will also play a role in a new Bleacher Report series distributed across B/R’s social and digital platforms. The new series, co-produced with Earnhardt’s Dirty Mo Media, will capture the thrilling NASCAR experience as he interviews special guests while driving each of TNT’s five NASCAR Sprint Cup Series tracks with them in the passenger seat.

“It is such an exciting time to welcome TNT Sports back to NASCAR,” said Earnhardt. “I remember watching the races on TNT back in the day, and it’s so nostalgic to see them return to the sport and to be a part of their team. I’m looking forward to joining their team and also getting the chance to work with Bleacher Report creating content that our fans will enjoy.”

Earnhardt has had quite a relationship with TNT Sports on the other side of the camera. His first career NASCAR Cup Series race—the 1999 Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway—aired on TBS. The network also televised the first-ever race in which Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Dale Earnhardt Jr. competed against each other, a 300-mile exhibition race at Twin Ring Motegi in Motegi, Japan.

“We’re very thrilled to welcome Dale to the TNT Sports family as we partner closely in setting the cornerstone for our NASCAR coverage,” said Craig Barry, Executive Vice President and chief content officer, TNT Sports. “We could not be more excited for the return of NASCAR to TNT Sports next Summer, with Dale being a critical part of the overall vision and execution of our coverage."
