The 22nd Annual Kalamazoo Klash at Kalamazoo Speedway in Kalamazoo, Michigan on Wednesday, August 13th will be the fourth Pay-Per-View event on Speed 51’s very own 51 TV. It will also be the fourth event that will be shown live for the first time to a worldwide audience.
“So far we have done the Redbud 300, Slinger Nationals, and the Battle at Berlin 251. None of these events have ever been shown live until we were able to do it through 51 TV,” said Bob Dillner, founder of Speed51.com and NASCAR on FOX TV commentator. “Now we are doing it with another awesome event, the Kalamazoo Klash, on August 13th. We love Outlaw Late Models and there is always plenty of excitement when the CRA Super Series comes to town.”
The 22nd annual event will have a 150-lap Outlaw Late Model race that will pay $10,000 to the winner. The ARCA/CRA Super Series will also have a 100-lap event that night as well.
A few drivers plan to compete in both events. This year, one particular driver is throwing his hat into both events.
“One thing that is going to make this Pay-Per-View special is that fans will get a rare opportunity to see Kyle Busch not only race his template body Super Late Model, but they will see him go for the $20,000 in an Outlaw Late Model as well,” said Kevin Ramsell, Speed51.com’s Director of Business. “Kyle has won some big Super Late Model events like the Snowball Derby, Winchester 400, and others. Now he is looking to put the Kalamazoo Klash on that list and fans who can’t be at Kalamazoo in person will have that opportunity to see if he can do it by watching 51 TV.”
The 22nd Annual Kalamazoo Klash pay-per-view can be ordered today for only $19.99.
“We are eager to show our big event to a worldwide audience,” said Kalamazoo Speedway Promoter Gary Howe. “The Kalamazoo Klash continues to be a ‘must see’ event on many short track fans lists. Some are not able to see this event in person and the pay-per-view is a new option for us to help expand our fan base, not just for this event, but also for the track itself. This year’s event will be special in many ways and I hope fans can either see it in person on on 51 TV.”
Speed51.com will also have its popular free Trackside Now live text and photo updates of the Kalamazoo Klash from the time practice begins up to the live broadcast. When 51 TV goes on the air, Trackside Now updates will pause until the conclusion of the live video broadcast.
