NASCAR Creates Race Video Archive

NASCAR Creates Race Video Archive | THE SHOPNASCAR has created a new video archive featuring free, ad-free full race replays, the sanctioning body announced.

The archive, called NASCAR Classics, has more than 1,000 full race replays, condensed broadcasts and recap packages spanning eight decades of the NASCAR Cup Series.

The archive also features a curated group of replays called “NASCAR’s Top 75 Greatest Races.” The unranked collection, selected by the sanctioning body, showcases some of the most exciting on-track action, important milestones and enduring memories throughout NASCAR’s first 75 years, bookended by 1951’s Motor City 250 in Michigan and Ross Chastain’s “Hail Melon” move at Martinsville in October of 2022, NASCAR said.

“NASCAR Classics is a significant addition to our digital content offerings that for the first time ever gives fans around the world free, uninterrupted access to enjoy decades of past NASCAR Cup Series action whenever and wherever they’d like,” said Tim Clark, senior vice president and chief digital officer at NASCAR.

Visitors to NASCAR Classics can choose replays via navigation dropdowns that filter races by era and by track, or through a keyword search that lets them look for specific drivers and race names in addition to individual years and venues. Once a video is selected, a custom timeline tool enables viewers to jump directly to key moments throughout the race.

NASCAR Classics includes most Cup Series race broadcasts available to date, and NASCAR will continue to add recently run Cup Series races to the online archive within weeks of their conclusion, the organization said.
