Negotiations for next TV deal in final stages
KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Negotiations for a new Nextel Cup television contract could be completed before the end of the season, NASCAR chairman Brian France said.
The current $2.6 billion, six-year contract, with Fox and NBC splitting the season, expires at the end of the 2006 season.
"We're getting down to the wire," France said Saturday at Kansas Speedway. "Looks to be in the next four to six weeks or sooner there will be some firm announcements of where we'll land."
