Article in RACER says his social media antics may have been the root cause of NBC's decision not to renew PT's contract. I don't know what he did on social media, but some people say Tracy is a MAGA-spewing racist. As I've never seen any of his social media posts, I'll leave that to others to comment.
He’s been investigated a couple of times by NBC before his schedule was somewhat reduced last year but nothing ever came of them, apparently one of the guys at NBC Sports is/was a buddy of his so I’m not sure if something happened organizationally there or if it really was about pursuing more racing interests. Last year he steered clear of controversy.Article in RACER says his social media antics may have been the root cause of NBC's decision not to renew PT's contract.

My personal impression of PT in the announcers' booth is that he added very little except constantly whining about drivers deserving penalties for everything they do.
NBC Sports has not renewed the contract of 2003 Champ Car champion and veteran NTT IndyCar Series commentator Paul Tracy. The change comes after Tracy produced what was arguably his best season of …racer.com
I don’t know if they have the capacity to do that, but he was going to run a fifth car at Indy when that was the only oval Jimmie was going to do. His contract said all ovals so they might have to partner with another team to make it work.Any word if TK will still run the ovals in a 5th car?
His leadership kept ChampCar afloat in working with Cosworth as well.I’m glad he got that 500 victory with TK. He did a lot for AOWR for certain. We’ve lost too many important characters from the sport over the last year or so, sadly.
Well it sure is great if you live in the same time zone as I.Kinda strange to me that in the FOX portion of the NASCAR season there’s only one conflict, then when NASCAR shifts to NBC there’s a bunch of races on at the same time. Also, no real night racing. But that’s one of the prices to pay for so many network broadcasts I suppose.
