Liberty Media Could Have An Interest In NASCAR

Scott Page ESPN | Nov 25, 2018

Liberty Media currently owns stakes in the music industry (through internet radio company Pandora, satellite radio company SiriusXM, and ticketing company Live Nation), the sports industry (Formula One and the Atlanta Braves), cable systems operators (Charter Communications), TV production (Viacom) and digital media (food-focused Tastemade).

In an recent interview with NBC News' Claire Atkinson, CEO Greg Maffei was asked about the company's interest in NASCAR:

Q: Let's talk about sports. What is your interest in the regional sports networks being sold by Disney and Fox, and there are reports that Nascar could be on the market?

A: The logical owners of the RSNs are either a big distributor or a big content owner. We would take a look because of the Atlanta Braves alone, we are big content supplier to them. We'd be interested in taking a look. We like motor sports. If NASCAR were available, we'd certainly take a look.

...the Nascar Liberty Cup Series....It has a ring to it! Maybe the Cup Champion's trophy could be made to resemble an upside-down Liberty Bell!!!! Let Freedom Ring!
