“Having our 2019 World Championship on MAVTV is a huge opportunity for not only FASTRAK, but Pro Late Model Racing as a whole,” said FASTRAK Executive Vice President DJ Irvine, “This is a once in a lifetime event, and I’m certain these drivers will put on quite the show. I have to thank Bob Dillner and his team over at Speed51.com on helping make this a reality.”
