Comcast has announced two additions to the X1 Entertainment Operating System that will enhance the viewing experience for NASCAR fans.

The company has added new NASCAR content to its Xfinity On Demand platform and expanded its X1 Sports App to include scheduling information for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR XFINITY Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

The updates come as Comcast’s Xfinity brand takes over as the title sponsor of the NASCAR XFINITY Series.

“We’re bringing technology together with sports and entertainment experiences, and nowhere more so than with NASCAR,” said Matt Lederer, senior director of Sports Marketing for Comcast.

Available to all X1 customers, the X1 Sports app gives viewers the opportunity to tune directly to network race broadcasts or an option to set a recording for later viewing.

NASCAR and Comcast will work together on future enhancements of the app that may include content such as race-specific data including leaderboards, live news feed / ticker and schedules.

The NASCAR XFINITY Series starts on February 21 with the running of the Alert Today Florida 300 at Daytona International Speedway.
