Daytona 500 to be shown live in UK

Fans in the UK will be able to watch Dario Franchitti's NASCAR Sprint Cup series debut live as Sky Sports will broadcast the 50th anniversary of the Daytona 500 in high-definition on Sunday.

Sky Sports will broadcast every race of the 2008 NASCAR Sprint Cup series, where Scotsman Dario Franchitti will be competing for the Rookie of the Year honours, also trying to follow in the footsteps of his Ganassi teammate Juan Pablo Montoya, who raced in the Daytona 500 for the first time a year ago.

"With the 50th anniversary of the Daytona 500 and NASCAR's 60 year celebration, we're glad to be able to bring all the action of the Sprint Cup Series to the fans around the world through our growing list of international TV partners," NASCAR Vice president International Robbie Weiss told

The Sprint Cup series season-opener will be aired in more than a hundred countries around the world. In Europe, free-to-air channel TVE from Spain will add to the list of broadcasters of NASCAR events on the continent, carrying the Daytona 500 in its entirety as the first of a number of Sprint Cup events to be aired live by them.

The Daytona 500 will start at 20:30 GMT on Sunday.
