NASCAR Productions is continually working to integrate NASCAR into mainstream pop culture in an effort to expand the sport’s reach to new and more diverse audiences.
“Our goal is to produce original TV, film and digital projects that highlight some of the most compelling stories in NASCAR,” said Zane Stoddard, VP Entertainment Marketing and Content Development at NASCAR. “We are excited about the opportunity to partner with William Levy and his team on a project we believe both sports and nonsports fans alike will enjoy.”
