After playing in the dirt during the North Carolina Modified Nationals at Friendship Speedway (NC) and broadcasting the Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway (NC), 51 TV will make their way to Toledo Speedway this Saturday, April 11 for a live broadcast of the 7-Up Twin 100’s. The live online broadcast from Toledo, Ohio will be the third live broadcast in three weeks and will complete the hat trick of exciting racing action on 51 TV.
From watching the Renegades of Dirt Modifieds slinging dirt on the 3/8-mile dirt oval at Friendship to the side-by-side action of the Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models on the .363-mile asphalt oval of Hickory, 51 TV has offered short track racing fans unable to attend these events a wide variety of action to watch from their homes.
That will be no different this weekend when the ARCA/CRA Super Series, ARCA Midwest Tour and ARCA Gold Cup Series tackle the half-mile, high-banked oval live on 51 TV.
“This is a really exciting time for short track racing fans and for 51 TV,” said Brandon Paul, Editor for Speed51.com. “Over the course of the last 10 days, fans have had the opportunity to watch Modifieds on dirt and Super Late Models on asphalt. Now, as the 51 TV crew heads to Toledo, short track fans get the opportunity to witness Super Late Models and Outlaw Late Models on the fast, high-banked half-mile of Toledo Speedway. This is a perfect track and perfect combination to complete the three-race hat trick on 51 TV.”
The live pay-per-view broadcast will be headlined by a Super Late Model combination event featuring the ARCA/CRA Super Series and ARCA Midwest Tour in a 100-lap battle at Toledo. Co-headlining the event on the live broadcast will be a 100-lap main event for the ARCA Royal Truck & Trailer Gold Cup Outlaw Late Models.
Toledo Speedway hosted successful combination events between the ARCA/CRA Super Series and ARCA Midwest Tour in 2013 and 2014, but now fans worldwide will have the opportunity to watch drivers from two of the nation’s premiere short track series wage battle for supremacy. While it is a non-points event for the Midwest Tour, the 100-lap Super Late Model feature on April 11 will kick off the chase for the 2015 ARCA/CRA Super Series championship.
51 TV’s signature broadcast style will feature a live, in-house broadcast team, multiple camera angles, a network-style graphics package and more that will bring the fans unable to make it to Toledo, Ohio that much closer to the action.
The live 51 TV broadcast will kick off at 1 pm ET on Saturday, April 11 from Toledo Speedway with live coverage of qualifying for the ARCA/CRA Super Series and ARCA Midwest Tour Super Late Models as well as the ARCA Gold Cup Series Outlaw Late Models. The live broadcast will continue with coverage of the Last-Chance races (if necessary) and into a pre-race show before 7-Up Twin 100′s feature racing action begins.
