Brad says, “I’m so excited that NASCAR is returning to Nashville – after 37 long years! I get to kick off the 2021 NASCAR season by hosting the NBC Sports’ pre-race coverage with my buddy Dale Jr. – how cool is that going to be?”
“I’m thrilled to work with my friend Brad Paisley to welcome NASCAR back to one of my favorite cities,” said Earnhardt Jr. “I can’t wait to get on the Peacock Pit Box with Brad, celebrate the passionate racing fans in and around Nashville, and kick off NBC Sports’ portion of the NASCAR season in style.”
