NHRA and FOX have announced that all 10 races in the 2016 NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series season will air on FOX Sports 1 (FS1) and FOX Sports 2 (FS2).
FS2 will televise each half-hour program in primetime on the Thursday following each national event that features the NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series. In addition, FS1 will re-air the 30-minute shows within three days of the original FS2 Thursday broadcast.
