More on NBC’s NASCAR broadcast team

The team which will bring NASCAR telecasts back to NBC in 2015 is close to being finalized. Dave Burns and Mike Massaro – both members of ESPN/ABC's NASCAR broadcast team – will make the move to NBC Sports in time for the deal. Burns is expected to become part of NBC's pit road reporting team in NASCAR, while Massaro is expected to become an in-studio host, sources said. Burns currently serves in a similar role with ESPN as does Massaro, who has hosted the show 'NASCAR Now' and worked pit road during race telecasts. Earlier this week, NBC completed its broadcast booth lineup with the announcement that current crew chief Steve Letarte will join driver-turned-analyst Jeff Burton and play-by-play announcer Rick Allen. Spokespersons for ESPN and NBC declined comment. Charlotte Observer
