New Features Coming to the NASCAR Discord Channel


New features and controls have arrived on the NASCAR Discord channel as NASCAR and Discord have teamed up to bring a more exclusive racing experience to the community.

Real-time race highlights will be linked to in-race alerts provided by the new NASCAR-verified bot with clips including stage finishes, lead changes and best passes throughout the race. A post-race highlights video will also be available to recap the day’s events.

“When we launched our Discord channel last year, we wanted to create a unique community that could natively engage with sports,” said Nick Rend, general manager of games and esports. “Through our partnership with Discord and our channel mods, we are able to offer more behind-the-scenes access and customization options for users as they create their own individual experience and interactions with each other. others.”

In addition to race highlights, five NASCAR Cup Series driver radio streams will air during each event, with users voting for the five drivers they’d like to hear 24 hours before the green flag drops.

In 2021, NASCAR became the first sports league to launch an official server with the voice, video and text communication service Discord, bringing new features to the platform, including free access to live audio streams in the car of 2021 NASCAR Cup Series championship contenders.

The NASCAR Cup Series playoffs continue with Round 8 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The Dixie Vodka 400 will take place at 2:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, October 23 (NBC, NBC Sports App, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
