Speed51 to Broadcast North-South Shootout at Hickory

The North-South Shootout comes to one of short track racing’s most historic venues, taking place at Hickory Motor Speedway (NC) for the first time on November 9.  Race fans unable to make the trip to “The Birthplace of the NASCAR Stars” will still be able to watch the 17th Annual North-South Shootout live on Speed51.


A live broadcast of Saturday’s featuring racing will air exclusively on the Speed51 Network for monthly and yearly subscribers.  If you’re not already a subscriber, click here to join today.


The event, promoted by Prestoria Race Alliance (PRA) Tours, will be headlined by 150-lap races for Tour-type Modifieds and Super Late Models.  The program will feature nearly 500 laps of racing Saturday, including the 602 Tour Super Limiteds, 602 Tour Modifieds, Allison Legacy Series and Vintage racers.


“We’re excited to join forces with the PRA Tours to offer a live video stream to race fans unable to make the trip to Hickory Motor Speedway,” said Speed51 Content Manager, Brandon Paul.  “With the racing season over in New England, we know that fans of the ground-pounding Modifieds will be eager to watch many of the Northeast Modified stars in action this weekend.”


The Modified field already features several big names for the fall race, with Northeastern standouts such as six-time North-South Shootout winner Matt Hirschman and Patrick Emerling taking on the Carolina locals like Burt and Jason Myers, Tim Brown and newly-crowned Southern Modified Racing Series champion John Smith.   Click here to see more about the entry list for Saturday’s race.


Saturday’s broadcast will begin at 2:00 p.m. ET with the start of feature racing.  Stay tuned to Speed51 for more coverage details surrounding the event.


There will be a 90-mile blackout radius surrounding Hickory Motor Speedway on the broadcast, which will include the Charlotte, Greensboro and Winston-Salem markets.  We encourage these fans to attend this event in-person and enjoy all of the racing action firsthand.
