Battle for the NASCAR Playoffs intensifies in ‘Race for the Championship’ Episode 7


Editor’s note: Tune in live or set your DVRs for Episode 7 tonight at 10 ET on USA Network. The previous six episodes are currently available for streaming on Peacock.

Episode seven of USA Network’s unscripted series “Race for the Championship” airs tonight at 10 ET, and the seventh of 10 episodes provides exclusive looks and sounds surrounding a couple of drivers who are in the thick of the NASCAR Playoffs hunt – and notably, one who removed himself from the postseason picture.

23XI driver Kurt Busch is in the spotlight this week as he recovers from a wreck at Pocono Raceway that left him with lingering concussion-like symptoms. Go behind the scenes with Busch during his workouts, and with 23XI as they announced to the shop that Busch has withdrawn his request for a medical waiver for the postseason, knowing he wouldn’t be ready for the opener at Darlington.

Each episode throughout the series will feature multiple drivers and their lives and stories away from the track. In addition to Busch, Brad Keselowski and Ryan Blaney are highlighted tonight as the series focuses on both their stories off the track and on it as the Cup Series concludes its regular season at Daytona International Speedway.

Blaney’s pressure-filled day at Daytona has never felt more tense, with behind the scenes video and audio on his push for the final postseason spot.

NBC Universal previously announced that the entire season so far of Race for the Championship will be available on Peacock starting Oct. 7. Episodes 7-10 of Race for the Championship will still debut on USA Network before being available on Peacock the next day.

So after watching tonight’s Episode 7, be sure to stream previous episodes or any you may have missed on Peacock.
