ABC/ESPN announces plans for several markets carrying Las Vegas Nationwide race

NNSracing.com

Because of regional college basketball and other local conflicts, some ABC affiliates carrying Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway at 3 p.m. Eastern have arranged alternate viewing choices in their service areas, in most cases on digital-tier (DT) stations.

The pre-race program will not air in two markets, and the stations in those markets will join the race in progress, but no markets will totally shut out the race telecast. NASCAR fans should contact their local ABC affiliates with any questions.

Here are the affected markets/stations and the station's plans for NASCAR fans:

Des Moines, Iowa (WOI-TV) - Because of Big 12 basketball game, pre-race show and race will air on the station's DT2 channel (RTV).

Rochester, NY (WHAM-TV) - Because of coverage of a local telethon, pre-race show and race will air on the station's DT2 channel (CW).
