Kind of expected. I do feel the Speed team is moving to NBC.

Finally, a network that won't treat F1 like crap. Good move Bernie and NBC Sports, however they better do a decent job hiring the broadcast crew.

You're probably right. Bob Varsha just followed @NBCSN on twitter last night if that's a bit of a hint.

Seeing that 4 races are in NBC, and the rest on NBCSN, I'm guessing the NBC races will be, along with Canada...

Both US races.
Brazil

Basically, the ones that can easily air on network TV during the day, and make it worth it's while.

Let's also hope, when the races are on NBC, they can give it a proper pre-race show, instead of jumping in right as the lights go out.

I think might do that summer stretch like fox did from Canada to Hungary.

The race in New Jersey won't be on NBC, because it takes place on the same day as the final round of the US Open, which NBC also owns the rights to.

Articles I've read stated that Canada and the final three races of the season would be on NBC.

If you would take time to read the article I linked to, you would see that the intent is to show everything live, which is also stated in this:

Should be the same as Robin Miller has worked for Speed for years and is over there for NBC's indycar coverage.

If they air lower-tier open wheel, USAC, and WoO Sprint Car races, then NBCSN would truely be the number one channel to watch open wheel races, IMO.

This. It would sort of remind of Thursday/Saturday Night Thunder.
