Indianapolis 500 Full Race NBC Sports’ lead IndyCar broadcast team of Leigh Diffey (play-by-play), Townsend Bell (analyst) and Paul Tracy (analyst) will call the 104th annual Indy 500.
Mike Tirico will lead NBC’s pre-race coverage from Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and for the second straight year, he’ll get help from retired IndyCar driver Danica Patrick.
“My first Indy 500 last year exceeded my very high expectations in every way,” Tirico said in a release. “Although this year’s race will take place under unprecedented circumstances, I can’t wait to get back to Indy. I’m confident that our team at the Brickyard will provide viewers with as exciting a viewing experience as possible.
