ARCA to Broadcast Troop Aid 200 from Nashville On-Line
(TOLEDO, Ohio - March 31, 2015) – Officials from the Automobile Racing Club of America announced today that the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards “Troop Aid 200” would be streamed live on www.arcaracing.com.
The Saturday night, April 11 event from Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville will be available to fans on a pay-per-view basis on www.arcaracing.com, featuring the 200 lap ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards event.
“We’ve dabbled with some live streaming video in the past, but certainly nothing like what we’ll be offering from Nashville,” commented ARCA President Ron Drager. “We’ve been trying to find a way to deliver race events that are not telecast on traditional TV for some time, and we’re excited about this!”
The webcast of the Troop Aid 200 will be the first fully produced race event streamed on the ARCA website. The sanctioning body has previously aired streaming video from events, but never a fully produced program, complete with graphics, live “play-by-play” and color commentary.
“Our goal is to present the on-line program as a high quality broadcast,” said Mark Gundrum, ARCA Vice President for Business Development and Corporate Partnerships. “We believe that sports fans in general, and race fans in particular, will continue to seek live programming. This is a platform that allows us to present ARCA Racing in a fully produced, live format. This package is great for the teams, sponsors and fans of the series.”
Fans will be able to place orders for the pay-per-view programming beginning on Monday, April 6 at 9:00 am Eastern Time. The broadcast will be available for $29.95.
Arcaracing.com’s live coverage of the Troop Aid 200 from Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville will showcase the 2nd race of the recently announced Calypso Lemonade Short Track Challenge, a championship series within the greater ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards. The Calypso Lemonade Short Track Challenge is comprised of the 11 race events at tracks one-mile or less in length. The newly formed championship series will also see three races broadcast on CBS Sports Network (Toledo Speedway, Winchester Speedway and the Illinois State Fairgrounds) and two events (Iowa Speedway and Lucas Oil Raceway) broadcast live on FOX Sports 1.
