One of Maine’s most prestigious Pro Stock races will be televised to a worldwide audience this Sunday, September 6. The Boss Hogg 150 at Wiscasset Speedway, a tradition dating back to 1991, will be streamed live on the all-new Speed51.TV.
Race fans will be able to tune in and watch the race by purchasing a monthly or yearly subscription to Speed51.TV.
Wiscasset is currently limited to only 200 fans in the grandstands due to state regulations, with a limited number of $5 general admission tickets will be available on race day. Due to the restrictions, the speedway has partnered with Speed51 to provide a live broadcast for those who are unable to attend.
Paying $5,000 to the race winner, the Boss Hogg 150 is one of the biggest Late Model races of the year in the state of Maine. The race is named after longtime hall-of-fame racer and former Wiscasset Speedway owner Dave “Boss Hogg” St. Clair.
A strong field of drivers including 2017 Oxford 250 winner Curtis Gerry, former PASS winner Scott Chubbuck and recent PASS winner Dave Farrington Jr. are entered for the race. The last four Boss Hogg 150 winners – Andy Saunders (2016), Nick Jenkins (2017), Mike Hopkins (2018) and Ben Ashline (2019) – will also be competing in the event.
Sunday’s race will be the first ever live broadcast from Wiscasset Speedway on Speed51.TV. The track known as “Maine’s Fastest Oval” has been rejuvenated in recent years under the ownership of Richard and Vanessa Jordan.
When the Jordan family reopened Wiscasset Speedway in 2013, one of the first things they decided to do was to bring back the Boss Hogg in tribute of all St. Clair did for the race track.
Don’t miss out on your chance to watch one of the biggest races of the year in the state of Maine. Tune in to the Boss Hogg 150 this Sunday on Speed51.TV.
