Race fans worldwide will be able to experience the excitement of every Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco race in 2017. In a partnership between the series, race tracks and broadcast partners, all 12 of the series races will be broadcast live this season.
Previously, it was announced that all standalone SSS races on the schedule would be streamed this season on Speed51.com. With the addition of Bristol Motor Speedway’s Short Track U.S. Nationals in May, an event co-sanctioned by SSS, Champion Racing Association (CRA) and CARS Tour, all events will be streamed.
One event, an event co-sanctioned by SSS and CARS Tour at Anderson Speedway (SC) on June 10, will be broadcast live on CARSTour.Tv.
The broadcasting partnership between Speed51.com and the SSS began earlier this year with a live broadcast of the Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway. It continued in April with a live broadcast of the CRA/SSS Super Late Model Challenge at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville (TN), an even promoted by Track Enterprises.
“Our objective on putting this together is to help the drivers, teams and sponsors. We believe the online video broadcasts will give them the opportunity to enhance their exposure on many levels by racing with us,” said Tim Bryant, promoter of the Southern Super Series. “There’s nothing like the experience of being at one of our races, but this helps us and our competitors reach a larger audience and also helps those that cannot make it to the particular event to be able to watch all the great racing action.”
Each standalone race will have its viewing cost be the same price as the cost of an event ticket at each race track. The Short Track U.S. Nationals at Bristol can be purchased at an early bird rate of $44.99 for both days of racing.
Speed51.com’s streaming of the Southern Super Series schedule continues on April 28 and April 29 for the series’ only Gulf Coast doubleheader of the season. On Friday, April 28 the series will visit Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida before heading to Irvington, Alabama’s Mobile International Speedway on Saturday, April 29.
Video tickets for both of those events can be purchased for just $14.99 each.
After making a stop at Bristol on May 21-22, the series will kick off the month of June at Five Flags Speedway on June 2 before heading north to Anderson Speedway on June 10 for a combination race with the CARS Tour.
The series returns to Alabama for a visit to Montgomery Motor Speedway on July 1 before a three-week break and the next race at Five Flags Speedway on July 28. The second and final stop of the season at Mobile will take place on August 19
On August 19, the Southern Super Series will head to the State of Georgia for its annual event at Crisp Motorsports Park.
The final race of the season takes place on September 23 when a champion will be crowned at Five Flags Speedway.
In total, the series will visit seven different tracks in 2017 and all of those races can be viewed by a worldwide audience online.
