NASCAR and Nickelodeon are partnering for a new season of NASCAR Hammer Down. The eight x 15-minute series will see its third season premiere on Nicktoons September 23.
From NASCAR Productions, the show’s new season will be hosted by sisters Karsyn (pictured) and Kennedy Elledge, granddaughters of racing legend Dale Earnhardt. Ryan Blaney (No. 21 Ford for Wood Brothers Racing) and Bubba Wallace Jr. (No. 6 Ford for Roush Fenway Racing) will return as series regulars for the show’s Bubba & Blaney segment.
The new season was announced in line with Kids Drive NASCAR, a week-long youth initiative designed to introduce young fans to the sport. And as part of the campaign, NASCAR is launching the first-ever NASCAR Acceleration Nation mobile app for kids.
Airing Friday evenings, NASCAR Hammer Down will be part of Nicktoons’ NickSports programming block, which features original and acquired sports-themed programming including shows, specials and documentaries from the NFL, MLB and PGA. Additional content includes Whistle Sports Top 10 Trick Shots, EA SPORTS Game Changes, All in with Cam Newton, Crashletes, The Dude Perfect Show and Little Ballers.
