NASCAR on USA is a former television program that broadcast NASCAR races on the USA Network. From 1982[1][2][3][4] to 1984[5], USA Network broadcast the UNO Twin 125s[6][7] (now the Gander RV Duel). USA used CBS'[8][9] crew, graphics and announcers.

USA also aired the Atlanta ARCA race in 1985 and televised several NASCAR Busch Series races[10] in the late 1980s.

On January 26, 2016, NASCAR announced that the Cheez-It 355 at the Glen from Watkins Glen International would air on USA Network due to NBC and NBCSN's commitments to the Summer Olympics.[11]
