Dave Burns and Mike Massaro to join NBC Sports' NASCAR team

   The team which will bring NASCAR telecasts back to NBC in 2015 is close to being finalized. 

   Dave Burns and Mike Massaro, both members of ESPN/ABC’s NASCAR broadcast team, will make the move to NBC Sports in 2015, The Observer and have learned. 

   Burns is expected to become part of NBC’s pit road reporting team in NASCAR while Massaro is expected to become an in-studio host, sources said. Burns currently serves in a similar role with ESPN as does Massaro, who has hosted the show “NASCAR Now” and worked pit road during race telecasts. Burns worked with NBC when the network previously broadcast NASCAR events. 

   Earlier this week, NBC completed its lineup for its broadcast booth with the announcement current crew chief Steve Letarte will join driver-turned-analyst Jeff Burton and play-by-play announcer Rick Allen for NASCAR broadcasts. 

   A spokesman for ESPN declined to comment. A spokesman for NBC also declined comment.
