How to Watch NASCAR Xfinity Series Races Online Without Cable

Last Updated:

If you are a fan of the NASCAR Cup Series then you may have come across the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Whereas Cup Series races are mostly on Sundays, Xfinity Series races are normally held the day before. Read on to learn what you need to know to catch all the action.

In a hurry? Xfinity Series races air in a few different places. If you want to watch all the races, you need FS1, USA, NBC, and Fox, which you can get from a couple of live TV streaming services:

  • FuboTV: The best streaming service for international sports also provides 100+ well-selected channels. FuboTV allows you to try out its service free for 7 days.

Xfinity Series

The Xfinity Series, along with the Truck Series, acts as a kind of minor league for NASCAR with the Cup Series races acting as The Majors. But if the Xfinity Series is the minor leagues, they are AAA. They are considered the top level of racing below Cup Series races.

The top Xfinity Series drivers normally move up to the Cup Series. And some Cup Series drivers move down to the Xfinity Series. This is also like minor league baseball but also like promotion and relegation in soccer.

None of this should be taken to mean that Xfinity Series races aren’t worth watching. It’s often more exciting to watch Xfinity and ARCA races than Cup Series races. In fact, many fans prefer the lower tiers of racing where there is less money and technology and the action is more immediate and raw.

The series began in 1950 as a short-track race for NASCAR. The cars were allowed to have minor modifications (just not as much as the Modified Series cars).
