On Thursday, NBC Sports and IMSA have released the broadcast schedule for the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

Announced in April, NBC takes over as the new television partner for IMSA in 2019. IMSA prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year. Michelin also becomes the new Official Tire of IMSA this year.

IMSA races on the NBC network are at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca and Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.

Besides the NBC network, NBCSN, CNBC and the NBC Sports App will air IMSA’s races. A special one-hour IMSA preview show airs Thursday, January 24, at 2 p.m. ET before live qualifying for the Rolex 24 at Daytona at 3 p.m. ET.

“As we all get ready for IMSA’s much-anticipated 50th anniversary season in 2019, our new NBC Sports media partnership promises to promote and showcase our unique premium product in revolutionary ways,” said IMSA CEO Ed Bennett. “Both IMSA and the WeatherTech Championship have been experiencing incredible momentum the last several years and this partnership should only help elevate the sport to new heights.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to begin our IMSA coverage with the 57th running of the iconic Rolex 24,” said Jon Miller, President, Programming, NBC Sports and NBCSN. “As the home of U.S. motorsports, we’ll showcase the uniqueness of IMSA racing to motorsports fans everywhere, as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the association throughout the upcoming season.”
