Millbridge Speedway in Salisbury, NC is the home of Outlaw Kart racing in the Southeast. Today track officials are excited to announce that Speed51.com will be broadcasting four races from Millbridge Speedway in 2016.
The broadcast schedule from Millbridge Speedway will begin with the season opener at the 1/6-mile dirt oval on Wednesday night, March 9. In addition to that event, Speed51 TV will also stream the season-ending Battle at the Bridge event, as well as two other races to be announced at a later date.
“I love short track racing; I love dirt racing, and I love watching some of racing’s future superstars battle it out in Outlaw Karts,” said Bob Dillner, Speed51.com’s Executive Editor. “That’s why I love Millbridge Speedway and that’s why I’m so excited for Speed51 TV to broadcast these races. Jeremy and Ashly (Burnett) have created a competitive family atmosphere and it’s exciting to see it all continue to gain momentum. We are pleased to be able to extend our partnership together.”
By broadcasting the events live on Speed51.com, short track racing fans who may otherwise not be able to attend Millbridge will be able to witness the exciting racing action that takes place at the North Carolina dirt track. Fans will also be able to check out the very impressive improvements made to the facility to get a tease of what they’d experience by sitting in the grandstands.
“We are very excited to bring the fans four free broadcasts of our weekly events,” said Ashly Burnett, co-owner of Millbridge Speedway along with her husband, Jeremy. “We feel that being able to showcase our events across the nation helps the growth of not only our track, but the local dirt tracks across the country. We are also excited to show everyone all the improvements we made in the offseason, including new walls, improved lighting, new catch-fencing and new partnership billboards. We would like to thank QRC Karts and Speed51.com for coming on board to make these broadcasts free for our fans. They both have always been big parts of our success here.”
In addition to these four events, Speed51.com will also broadcast the biggest event of the year at Millbridge Speedway. On May 24-25 Speed51 Open presented by QRC Factory Karts and JGR MX will pay $5,151 to the winner of the Open Class. The Speed51 Open is the richest payday in Outlaw Karting history. The broadcast will be a pay-per-view event on Speed51.com and will pit some of the toughest competitors in all of racing, including World of Outlaws and NASCAR stars, against each other in the fast, lightweight Outlaw Karts.
