Brickyard 400

In 2009โ€”2014, the race was advertised on ESPN as Brickyard 400 presented by Golden Corral. The different name is due to a standing policy by NASCAR to not mention the race's title sponsor on-air more than the required twice per hour unless an advertising premium is paid to the network.

Under the terms of a new $2.7 billion television deal from 2015 to 2024, the race will be part of the NASCAR on NBC package. In 2015, the race will air live on NBCSN.

Also in 2015, the race is advertised on NBCSN as NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Racing from the Brickyard Presented by Golden Corral, with the Golden Corral sponsorship being carried over from ESPN. Crown Royal has never paid the advertising premiums required by NASCAR to be mentioned as title sponsor of the race, either to ESPN/ABC or to NBC.

All races have been broadcast on radio through the IMS Radio Network. Since 2004, Performance Racing Network has co-produced the race. Doug Rice, who is the chief announcer for PRN, currently anchors the broadcast. John Andretti is the current driver expert.
