Since the original Speed51 TV broadcast of the Slinger Nationals in 2014, race fans nationwide have been asking for a live video broadcast of the prestigious Super Late Model race held each year at Slinger Speedway in Wisconsin. This year, they will get what they’ve been asking for. Speed51 and Slinger Speedway have reached an agreement to offer a live pay-per-view broadcast of the 40th Annual SUPERSEAL Slinger Nationals next Tuesday, July 9.
Pay-per-view video tickets for the live broadcast can be purchased now for $24.99 by clicking here.
The live broadcast of the Slinger Nationals will be only the second of its kind offered on Speed51. In fact, the original pay-per-view broadcast of the race in 2014 was the second live broadcast ever offered on Speed51.com. Since that time, hundreds of short track races have been streamed live to racing enthusiasts worldwide. There will be a 100-mile driving distance blackout of the event.
“The Slinger Nationals stand tall as one of the premier Super Late Model events in the country each year,” said Speed51 Editor Brandon Paul. “We’ve answered many questions from race fans in recent years about broadcasting this event, and we’re glad to be able to tell them that we will in fact be broadcasting the event this year. The Slinger Nationals are always full of excitement, and the stout field of drivers entered for this year’s race makes it that much better. While nothing will replace eating cheese curds and enjoying the racing in person, we’re excited to offer the next best thing to race fans who can’t make it.”
Drivers entered for this year’s version of the Slinger Nationals include NASCAR Cup Series champion Matt Kenseth, current NASCAR Cup Series driver Daniel Hemric, former NASCAR Truck Series champion Johnny Sauter, defending race winner Ty Majeski, and southern Super Late Model star Bubba Pollard.
Slinger Speedway’s quarter-mile patch of asphalt with turns banked at 33 degrees has made it one of the top destination tracks in the country. Many racers and fans, including defending winner Ty Majeski, have referred to the track as a smaller version of Bristol Motor Speedway; others have referred to it as “jet fighters in a gymnasium.”
With NASCAR stars competing against some of the top short trackers in the land, this year’s event will be one of the most anticipated events for both fans snatching up tickets and for those watching on Speed51.com.
The live broadcast on Speed51 will begin at approximately 6:45 p.m. CT / 7:45 p.m. ET. Fans will be able to tune in for the Super Late Model qualifying race, Late Model feature, Super Late Model semi feature, and the 200-lap Slinger Nationals main event for Super Late Models.
All that is needed to purchase a live video ticket for $24.99 is a Speed51.com PPV Registration. However, yearly subscribers to the Speed51 Network receive 10% off all pay-per-view purchases, including this year’s Slinger Nationals, as well as access to all of Speed51’s on-demand video content and over 100 live races in 2019.
