NASCAR highlights to be sold on iTunes Music Store

As expected, race fans will be able to purchase and download NASCAR Nextel Cup Series content throughout the 2006 season from Apple’s iTunes Music Store. NASCAR announced today that highlights and behind-the-scenes coverage from this year’s races, beginning with Sunday’s Daytona 500, will be available for $1.99 per video.

“NASCAR, which is the second highest-rated regular season sport on television and has seen TV audience growth of nearly 80% over the past 15 years, will produce the iTunes previews and reviews with unique content designed to drive fans to the race telecasts and complement those telecasts. In the U.S., there are 75 million NASCAR fans, including 30 million women.”

If it’s anything like their highlights show editing, you won’t see a bloody thing… still going to be popular with the southern, bud swilling, pickup truck driving Earndhart fans…

“We’re thrilled to be working with NASCAR,” Steve Jobs stated. “We anticipate that NASCAR will be one of the headline attractions in our upcoming iTunes video genre, ‘Videos of Things that Suck.’”
