The tape-delayed broadcast of the March Madness event for the Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series at Cherokee Speedway will debut at 7 p.m. ET on MAVTV.
"We're very proud of the show our racers, officials and everyone involved put on during March Madness," said Cherokee Speedway promoter Scott Childress.

We hope that fans all over the country can watch the broadcast and make their plans to join us soon at 'The Place Your Momma Warned You About.'"
The enhanced one-hour broadcast of the $12,000-to-win race will feature a broadcast team including a pit reporter, as well as multiple camera angles and replays never seen before.
