The broadcast announce team for 51 TV during the weekend will feature veteran NASCAR broadcaster and Speed51.com owner Bob Dillner, as well as the voices of the ARCA/CRA Super Series, Adam Mackey and Matt Prieur.
“SpeedFest’s tradition of being an early-season all-star event in short track racing has made it a can’t-miss show for race fans everywhere,” said Speed51.com’s executive director, Matt Kentfield. “That is why we are so excited to partner with CRA to bring all the action of SpeedFest 2015 to race fans who so desperately want to see some intense short track action while it’s bitterly cold in most parts of the country.”
Adam Mackey, one of the voices behind the ARCA/CRA Super Series and 51 TV’s broadcast of the Snowball Derby, is thrilled to have 51 TV broadcasting the upcoming event.
“It’s been great to have Trackside Now and Speed 51 radio coverage of Speedfest in the past,” said Mackey. “This year being the first year with live video coverage really steps it up for the fans that can’t make it to the show in Cordele.”
51 TV will go live on Sunday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. ET with coverage of the ARCA/CRA Super Series 200 lap main event for the Super Late Models, as well as the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour 125 for the Pro Late Models.
Coverage of qualifying for both the Super Late Models and the Pro Late Models on Saturday will begin at 4 p.m. ET. Coverage of qualifying day is available for $4.99 for those who aren’t able to watch both days of racing action.
“We have already heard the buzz about this year’s race and all of the huge names that are participating in it, so we know that race fans will enjoy all that we have to bring them with our live pay-per-view broadcasts,” said Kentfield. “We continually invest in cutting edge technology and personnel to bring events like SpeedFest to fans who can’t make it to the track.”
For just $19.99 fans can see the defending Speedfest winner and the 2014 NASCAR Xfinity Series champion Chase Elliott do battle with the 2014 Snowball Derby winner, John Hunter Nemechek, in addition to many more stars from the Super and Pro Late Model ranks.
A blackout is in effect for those who live within a 100-mile radius of the Watermelon Capital Speedway.
