“Teaming with IMSA and the new TUDOR United SportsCar Championship to solidify a strong 60-plus-hour television package is a great beginning to this long-term relationship,” said David Nathanson, general manager and chief operating officer of FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports 2. “And being able to open the sports car racing season with a pair of iconic endurance races like the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring gives us an amazing platform on which to build.”
