#5 Brickyard 400 not on main channel
One of the many problems that fans will face throughout the season is that NBCSN is only available with certain TV packages, which means that some fans will be forced to go without some weeks. While it would be more acceptable if these were races that meant little to the championship picture and weren’t crowd favorites, but they really aren’t
In fact, The Brickyard 400, which serves as the regular season finale before the 16 championship contenders are decided, will only be available on NBCSN and not on the main channel. Not only is that a huge blow for some fans wanting to watch how the playoff picture comes into its final form, it also shows that the occasion isn’t very important to NBC either.
