While the big boys are racing their fast toys at Daytona International Speedway next week, many of the sport’s rising stars and veteran racers will be competing in the 13th Annual Winter Nationals for Legend Cars and Bandoleros at nearby Orlando Speed World. In a partnership with U.S. Legend Cars, Speed51.com announced Wednesday that all five nights of racing action will be aired live on Speed51 TV via a pay-per-view broadcast.
“After all of the success we had working with Speed51 throughout the Bojangles’ Summer Shootout, as well as the 2015 Asphalt Nationals, we’re excited to have them join us in Orlando this year,” said John Haggan, Executive Competition Director for U.S. Legend Cars. “They provide great coverage to those unable to attend the event. We’re looking forward to continuing this partnership and making our USLCI/INEX events even better than before.”
The live Speed51 TV broadcast will allow friends and family members that can’t attend to still watch their favorite racers, as well as allow the casual race fan to watch the sport’s future stars. Current NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers Joey Logano and David Ragan, as well as NASCAR Camping World Truck Series rookie William Byron previously competed in the event.
“I’ve always enjoyed this event and previously competed with several different drivers including my daughter Meghan,” said Speed51.com owner Bob Dillner. “A lot of families can’t make it so this provides them with the opportunity to watch their favorite drivers as well as other future racing stars.”
In all, seven divisions will compete during the U.S. Legend Cars Winter Nationals including the Beginner Bandits and Outlaws divisions for the Bandoleros, as well as Young Lions, Sem-Pros, Pros and Masters divisions of Legends Cars. That equates to 180 laps of feature action each night.
Speed51 TV’s live broadcast will feature all of the racing action including qualifying heats and all feature races. The broadcast will be a one-camera shoot that will include audio from the public address announcers at the event.
Each day of racing can be purchased separately for just $14.99 per day, or fans can purchase the entire week of racing for just $59.99. That week-long offer if the equivalent to receiving one night of racing for free.
